Australia, became the first developed country that closed its borders to citizens of countries worst hit by the West African Ebola outbreak.
Citizens of Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea are among the first banned from Australia.
The issue provoked different response from people in various countries.
Many Australians and others feel that Australia's first and foremost duty is to its citizens and their welfare. They could not care less what the bureaucrats of the United Nations think.
People like this rightly or wrongly saying, they had enough of the language of 'social justice' applied to discuss the management of an internationally quarantible, and very lethal disease.
Ofwono Opondo, Ugandan government spokesman said, "Western countries are creating mass panic which is unhelpful in containing a contagious disease like Ebola,"
Mr. Obondo went on, "If they create mass panic ... this fear will eventually spread beyond ordinary people to health workers or people who transport the sick and then what will happen? Entire populations will be wiped out."
The media keeps claiming there's "mass panic"... No! There is no mass panic at this point in time. However, there is mass frustration, mass commonsense, mass desire to isolate a deadly disease.
Any politician, who is partial to the illusion that the situation will advance his or her chances by swaying under the influence of political correctness, and advocating decisions that may work in simple cases of civil rights, would be making a mistake.
The reality is that if things get really bad about the spread of this deadly disease, frightened people of all races, religions and backgrounds will blame something or somebody. Politicians "experts" and talking heads should keep this in mind.
However, by the use of commonsense, working together, as members of the human race with a common goal in mind, we will prevail. This is not a political football. Let's work on it and make the threat of Ebola just a bad memory.
