So, listening to NPR the otherday, they said it was expected SARS would return this year. So, what happens when SARS infects a third world country, like most of the courties in Africa or South and Central America? These are countries that do not have the means to contain the disease like Canada, the U.S.A., and China. Does the whole world lock all their borders, are do we all get sick? Maybe it's a good time to make sure you have health insurance.

This leads to a second thought. We have a large number of people in this nation with no health insurence. With highly contagious diseases like this, you have people who will not seek aid, due to the cost, and will wander around infecting others. While it smacks of socialistic in practice, would it be better to have the government give people free care for these extra virulent diseases, so people come in quickly, and are quarintined before they can pose a risk to a wider population?
