Top of Mind Thursday October 9, 2014: A Healthy Lesson

Top of Mind Thursday
After the first Ebola death on U.S. soil, there are plans being developed to do health checks of passengers arriving in this country from Africa.

Leverage2Market LogoIt certainly makes sense to take all reasonable precautions to prevent the spread of a lethal virus by travelers, especially given how quickly illness spreads with air travel. However, we need to remember that the American death count from Ebola stands at one. According to the CDC, as many as 49,000 Americans die each year from influenza.

We’ve all experienced that dreadful feeling when the passenger near us looks and sounds sick: can we hold our breath for five hours and not catch whatever they are carrying?

Wouldn’t it make more sense to keep sick passengers off airplanes in general? Rather than react to a specific situation, what can we learn that will help keep everyone healthier in general?
