That was one of the scary things in the book, 'The Hot Zone'...some doctor knowing he was infected with Ebola...boarded an airplane, exposing everyone to this deadly plague.

There was a fairly recent incident on the news of a young man, knowing he was infected with a virus boarded an airplane, NOT caring that he was exposing other people to the same virus.

It's difficult these days to be perfectly balance and fair, because there will always be people who lie and don't care about the welfare of others, thus forcing the 'Powers That Be' to sometimes take extreme measures to protect us, the public. Having said that...I'm going to be very careful what we say when boarding...hahaha
