If you listen to the sensationalists and the conspiracy theorists, bringing these two sick individuals here will lead to widespread contamination and contagion, with people dying like flies in the street. For all we know, this could be the beginning of the end for Western civilization.
But the reality is likely quite different. Our medical system is set up to handle patients with highly contagious diseases of this sort, with full quarantine and complete isolation. Furthermore, if these individuals are able to fight off the virus and recover, what we learn from the process may be extremely valuable in developing better ways to treat this horrible epidemic around the world — and perhaps other untreatable illnesses as well.
Being prepared in advance for this type of scenario, with proper training, process and procedure, was critical. Moving quickly to implement a plan of action when crisis hit leads to much better probability for a successful outcome.
