Expert: U.S. playing Russian roulette with Ebola

Gun - Public Domain

The United States is playing a game of Russian roulette by not closing its borders to the threat of Ebola from West Africa, contends a microbiology expert with 30 years experience in academics and private medical practice.

Dr. William Miller, author of the pioneering 2013 book “The Microcosm Within: Evolution and Extinction in the Hologenome,” said the establishment is on the wrong side of the issue.

“There seems to be a pushback against a travel ban by the media, national leaders and other persons of authority; yet everyone whom I speak to believes that we need to protect ourselves by every means,” said Miller in an exclusive WND interview.

“Am I the only voice that is willing to speak against current policy? I deeply feel that we are playing infectious-disease roulette.”

As WND reported Thursday, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in his testimony before a House subcommittee, insisted the U.S. must not impose an air travel embargo on West Africa.

  1. I think we have been given a repreive from this virus – a chance, to do the smart thing, which is to halt all travel (via visas) from people in the 3 Ebola ridden African countries. This may be our last chance, as the virus is not abating there, and taking the temperatures at airports is not an effective way to catch someone. If they know they have been exposed to the Ebola virus, get up the money to come here, they have the where-with-all to take a couple of Ibuprofen to abate their fever before landing. That’s what people did during the SARS epidemic, and they will do it again. We need to wise up in this country and institute a travel ban ASAP~before it’s too late!!!
