As noted at my other blog, Politically Well, today, Saturday, came the following report of a more intelligent approach to screening would-be airline passengers departing Conraky, Guinea, a live Ebola virus hot zone. France quickly concluded sometime overnight that they should do that screening before patients get on flights from Conraky to France.
Hopefully we will see all other nation-states with flight destinations from West African nations with live Ebola outbreaks sending airport monitoring teams with quarantine capability to screen would-be passengers heading to all destinations.
One may question whether this approach is chauvinistic. Not at all. If the nations providing help with the West African outbreak themselves become entangled in ebola outbreaks at their own airports and beyond, that could slow or even dry up help for West Africa.
When it comes to contagious, catastrophic viruses, the world is one.
