“Ten days after the last diagnosis, there have been no new Ebola cases in Dallas; a growing number of the city’s residents are out of quarantine; and it seems like a broader Ebola outbreak has been averted.”
“But when someone’s suffering from Ebola, the virus doesn’t spread easily until the disease has progressed…It’s the fundamental paradox behind Ebola: While it’s an incredibly powerful virus, it’s also hard to catch.”
