Quarantine is the way to go: Other views
USA Today

Charles Krauthammer, Fox News: “Even though there’s a dispute over the details of (the quarantine), there is now a national consensus, as there should be, that if you return from that zone, particularly if you have a fever, you can be in quarantine; which of course is an infringement on your civil liberties. … (But) we seem all to agree that quarantine — meaning the state depriving you of liberty — is the way to go in a potential epidemic.”

Errol Louis, CNN: “Forcing volunteers to sit in a quarantine center for three weeks … will discourage, and in some cases halt, the desire of good-hearted professionals to volunteer to fight the war against Ebola. … The great irony is that the politicians, driven by ambition, are going to contain, quarantine, hassle and discourage the people who really do have the right stuff: Men and women willing to put their lives on the line to save the rest of us.”
