The thing I haven't heard anyone say anything about is that Ebola infects other mammals. It clearly has some host in Africa that harbors it, although that host is unknown. It infects monkeys. It also infects mice.
The guy they sent home, who was cleaning up after him? Where did they put the paper towels and rags they used? I'm guessing straight in the trash, which went in a dumpster. What are the odds there are no mice or rats in the dumpsters in Dallas?
Now maybe it makes mice sick, or kills them, but it might not kill them all. We could already have a situation where we have ebola in a host population that we will not be able to eradicate.
And telling the mice they they have to stay quarantined is going to be even less effective than trying to find and quarantine the exposed people.
This genie is out. There are two vaccines in human trials. Keeping this from becoming a major outbreak in the U.S. until the vaccines are available may all we can hope for.
One last thought. What would eat a mouse? Will a housecat get infected? Apparently, that is an unknown and they may be resistant. Dogs get it, though. And they don't get sick, they just carry it.
