Closing the border to "Ebola countries" would be a disaster

That's what I have been saying. I just don't see how a travel ban could be completely enforced, and whatever help it does in slowing down the illness' spread is going to be outweighed by the amount it will make things worse in countries that already have an out of control Ebola epidemic when their economies take the hit that a travel ban would bring. Pushing their economy into further collapse is the last thing we should do if we want them to contain the outbreak.
