It's a time to prepare, not panic

It started half a world away from America. There were conflicting reports as to how the outbreak started, but the panic was very real. Here in the Valley and throughout the nation, hospitals and health departments held press conferences to outline what plans were in place to combat the virus. The year was 2002 and at that point, the West Nile virus was public enemy number one. By 2005, that panic had ended, replaced with a fear that the bird flu would travel from Asia and create problems in the United States. In 2009, it was Swine Flu and now, we have the threat of Ebola. The reality is that every few years, we see new viruses and different strains of old ones come up. It’s an ongoing cycle that we seem to be caught in. The lesson here however is that it’s wise to prepare, but there’s no need to panic.
