Had I not re-located to Tucson, Arizona I would be terrified right now that I had contact with one or more of the nine being monitored for possible Ebola. Three are Yale students and some had visited West Africa. Here is the coverage.
The scary part of this threat is that the Yale campus and all of New Haven (including the section I had lived in) is densely populated. As in Manhattan, parking is impossible. So you take the bus, where people are scrunched together. Contagion is highly possible.
Not that Ebola can't come to Tucson. But here in the desert there are wide-open spaces. Taking the bus is rare. It would be more unlikely to have direct contact with a carrier of the Ebola virus.
Of course, tonight I am concerned about my buddies back in New Haven, especially since most of them are Baby Boomers. Can we fight off Ebola, at our age?
