    BBC News - Ebola crisis 'to take six months to control'

    One of the tactics that is being used to try and establish control of the spread is the Cordon sanitaire
    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/13/s...-countries-cordon-off-ebola-racked-areas.html
    This is a very drastic measure. it amounts to placing a infected zone under siege. a military force is deployed around the perimeter and isolates and quarantines with military force sometimes individuals may be allowed to leav but only under strict conditions. for example at the end of World war one, there was a Epidemic typhus in Russia, there was also a nasty civil war. the Allies established a Cordon sanitaire to control the spread refugees were only allowed through after being shaved, inspected for lice and having all there belongings doused in pesticides and blasted with steam.
