...it's the only way to be sure.
Dear Dead Man Zero Subscriber, Thank you for uploading to Dead Man Zero! We're watching. Have a Nice Day! The NSA
Anybody truly paranoid and knowledgeable would not touch this with a 10 ft pole.
Thanks for providing future targets for Lockheed-Martin products!

We're looking at 10^3 *reported* cases, and this is currently uncontained, so who knows how many are bleeding out of their orifices in single apartments, unreported.
The bigger an infection gets, the harder it is to stop. So yeah, you want to freak out early and try to put the fire out quick by putting a lot of assets on the scene.
And, by the way, there are regions of the U.S. (yes, 'Murika!) where washing of the dead is a burial ceremony. Don't say that it can't possibly happen here. It can if you tempt fate enough times.
The only reason SLS exists is to keep the congresscritters from the former shuttle supply chain districts happy. That's it. NASA is desperately trying to keep funding going, and they ain't interested in pissing that money away on designing big dumb rockets, but politics says that they must to survive. Rockets are rapidly becoming a commercial technology, which is a good thing.
NASA would be very happy to buy rockets from Elon Musk and/or whoever else can put up competing articles. NASA would much rather be doing and spending its hard-fought budget on things that they do well, pushing the envelope on technologies for hard problems, like getting our asses to Mars, and science missions.
It's apparently far cheaper to just muddle along with a problem for years and years and years. Or at least until the company tanks.
In turn, this culture is a motivation killer, as initially ambitious employees will have their proposals shot down again and again, and so they either leave or just shrug their shoulders resignedly and Facebook all day, just keeping the illusion of productivity alive.
Edward Snowden's professed mission in life is to enable secure, anonymous internet communications.
Edward Snowden's visa in Russia has expired.
Snowden is on thin ice, I think. Where could he possibly go from Russia, except for a dark hole in GitMo?
