The unlucky gentleman who died in Lagos was attending to his sister, who may not know know she had Ebola. He almost got on a flight to the US. (He was a US citizen) He then died from it. Doubtful that he is the only air traveler who has contracted or carries the disease. Who knows how many other cases there are yet to be identified, revealed, and reported. Medicins Sans Frontieres reports that they are encountering difficulties as local folks believe MSF teams arriving in their villages are bringing the disease! May they be successful in fighting this plague. Support MSF if you can.

With the spread of Ebola in W.A., how soon before international airlines stop sending their crews & equipment to cities like Lagos. And another thought... should Customs & Immigration in US and other countries begin screening arriving passengers for fever?
