Will There Be Tighter Restrictions?
U.S. Visas Held By 13,500 People In Three Ebola Countries
From the article:
“It would be reasonable [for the president] to designate Ebola as a communicable disease of public health significance. That would enable the State Department to impose tighter restrictions on visitors” from countries with Ebola outbreaks, she said.
Under current policies, only people with obvious Ebola symptoms are excluded by border officials. But a person can be infected with the disease, and not show any symptoms, for up to 21 days.
Truth be told, though it would seem reasonable to stop ALL (in my opinion) travel into the United States from countries where Ebola seems to be flourishing… the President probably doesn’t have the nerve to make such a move . That’s just my opinion.
It has been and continues to be downplayed by the media. This could have been nipped in the bud.
