I think the UK is too worried about Ebola, but it's interesting to see how the government is preparing the NHS to handle it. Over the weekend the health service tested how good its response to Ebola is by using actors pretending to be ill.

It never hurts to be cautious, but I imagine preventative measures could become annoying. Health officials suggest we screen people coming into the UK, which sounds like a great idea - but the methods aren't very effective and take up people's time.
