Did anyone ever notice that our government is trying to scare us more than the terrorists are?
- The NSC asks for a worst case scenario. It is stark:
- By the end of the second generation of smallpox cases (about Jan. 3), 30,000 will be infected and 10,000 dead.
- By the end of Generation 3 (Jan. 20), 300,000 will be infected and 100,000 dead.
- By the end of Generation 4 (Feb. 6, which is 7 weeks after the start of the epidemic), 3 million will be infected and 1 million dead.
And we can not decide whether or not to quarantine SARS Symptomatic people, arriving in the USA via International flights? We are facing down serious plague risk. Unbelievable.
