close the borders to usa from west african countries and the americans will be c...

you have said you want to calm the fear in USA . Most americans feel that the quickest way would be to close the borders until the country feels assured that there will not be an epidemic in the USA. People do not believe your experts. The DR's now in africa have not succeeded in saving people. 70% have died. There is no known cure for ebola. Why are you persisting in believing the experts who have failed miserably to even be prepared for one west african with ebola? I am an average American speaking for other average Americans in fear of the lives of their families.
