|Re: [stem-ebola] Agenda for Ebola Call on October 22|
For the agenda, I'd suggest we do brief follow-up on last week's chat regarding the question from NIHR UK. There was an article just published in the Economist on this topic with quotes from UK officials.
NIHR UK Follow-up: Asymptomatic carriers will pass through screening undetected
"Why Airport Screening Won't Stop Ebola" -Economist"But David Heymann, a professor at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, says [such] screening did not stop those diseases and it is unlikely to stop Ebola."
"I would expect a handful of cases in the next few months," warned Sally Davies, Britain's chief medical officer, after the [Ebola airport] screening measures were announced [in the UK]."
