Do you trust the authorities to protect you from Ebola?

Are the right measures in place at airports and in hospitals? And is there enough coordination between the World Health Organisation, governments and airline companies?

It has emerged that the second nurse to contract Ebola in the US flew from Cleveland to Ohio with a slight fever after being cleared to fly by the US Center for Disease Control (CDC). Many in the US are asking why she was allowed to get on the plane, despite being under observation after treating a man who had died of the disease. So, do you trust the advice your authorities are providing on Ebola? Are the right measures in place at airports and in hospitals? And is there enough coordination between the World Health Organisation, governments and airline companies?
