Brave, caring doctors who are called to that unfortunate region should already know how to avoid Ebola. Yet they bring Ebola back.

Now, we are sending 4,000 brave inexperienced troops to that area and expect them to all avoid getting infected.

Is it obvious to anyone else that these "hazmat" suits are WAY too complicated to put on and remove? All these components: head coverings, aprons, gloves, tape and suit are just too many pieces to shuffle around and avoid contact with.

Why not have a seamless, "second skin" suit with one way in and one way out. The person going into the suit brings a portable breathing device like divers use. Bleach or incinerate entire suit after use.

It is a special calling for someone to run into a burning home to save someone. What if someone runs into a burning home catches fire and then proceeds to run from house to house? Perhaps that person shouldn't have run in.

Isolate, contain and pray.
