    The media has repeated there is little danger from Ebola in the US because it requires 'direct contact' to be infected.
    This is misleading and dangerous.
    This story from Spain reveals that the World Health Organisation (WHO) standards specify that suits for care workers must be impermeable and include breathing apparatus.
    If this is indeed a requirement it would indicate that transmission by air is much more likely than the reports have indicated.
    It also reveals that anyone sent home for quarantine may not only be a death sentence for their family, but a near certainty that the disease will not be contained.
    Any realistic plan for prevention of Ebola spreading in the US must include stopping persons entering the US before they circulate in the general public or containment is impossible.
