Exclamation Shut down the flights from Ebola hotspots in Africa already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fucking ridiculous!!!

Why the hell hasn't the FAA, TSA, CBP, CDC and the rest of the feds shut down air traffic from known areas in Africa where it is spreading from? What about the other passengers on the plane? What about all the unknowing passengers that get on the plane next and might be exposed, like the unlucky passenger that gets to use the freshly infected Ebola seat again? What about all the people at the airport they could have spread it to? And why are careless, clueless idiots flying back and forth to Ebola infected areas in Africa in the first place?

A trip to an infected area of Africa at this point should be a one way trip unless the person is traveling there to be an aid worker of some sort, and they are closely monitored when they return.

This is clearly not the time for a business or vacation trip just to visit the long lost relatives, you morons. Trying to get pets and animals through customs into the USA requires an isolation period, and it's high time they started forced isolation entering the country, at the passengers expense, on fools flying around these infected areas, if the feds aren't going to stop the flights for whatever assinine reasons.

And there is already plenty of proof, including lab studies, that it's airborne for extended periods of time, because aid workers are dying from it just carrying corpses out of houses with full body protection on, but wearing face masks that are obviously leaking air around the seals.

Sorry about the little rant, but WTF already!!! Shut down the flights from Ebola hotspots in Africa already!!!
