A THREE WEEK QUARENTINE BEFORE LEAVING THESE COUNTRIES WOULD PROTECT THE REST OF THE WORLD -- NOT ONLY FROM THE DISEASE -- BUT FROM THE INFECTION OF FEAR. WORLDWIDE EFFORTS WOULD CREATE AN EXIT CENTER THAT ALLOWS FOR INDIRECT PARTICIPATION.
An "exit center" near the airport would be constructed for health care workers. It would allow/require workers to participate in the ebola effort via INDIRECT contact for 3 weeks. It could also include psychological trauma debriefing groups as well as brainstorming groups to solve "on the ground problems" that the workers face. Here they could participate by helping assemble "chance buckets" or sending advise via technology.
How would we construct this center? A challenge to the worlds best hotel chains for creating the structure. A challenge to mental health groups for guidance in trauma debriefing. A challenge to our best worldwide IT companies for a useful communication system, etc.
