There were only 4 or 5 confirmed cases of Ebola in the states to begin with. And only two that were actually contracted while in the states. The last known case was several months ago. It was blown out of proportion from the start.

Oh, we absolutely did. We had department meetings, hospital and metro health meetings. We even went to the Tier 2 research facility that studies Marburg and Ebola down here and had face to face meetings with the doctors that research filoviruses. Our department got caught up in the same hype that everyone else did.Your department, didn't have four hour meetings on it?
