I have a pretty good intuition that many of you have thought about Ebola and what if it comes to the United States. It sits in the back of your mind as you worry a little for your family. Today Is the day that you can be a little more at ease with Ebola.
The CDC announced on September 23rd that it has sent out a modeling tool to all levels of government. This even includes your local government in Hobart and the surounding areas. The difference between the United States and other countries is that we have the resources and the ability to act fast if someone is shown to have brought Ebola into the United States.
CDC Director Thomas R. Frieden said “the model shows something other models out there do not – that a surge in response “can break the back of the epidemic. … [I]f you get enough people effectively isolated, the epidemic can be stopped and, related to that, when you reach a high enough number [with isolation and treatment] … the number of cases plummets rapidly, almost as rapidly as the exponential rise we are seeing now.”
