“The risk of Ebola to any one of us in the U.S., particularly those not involved in hands-on patient care, is less than that of getting struck by lightning or eaten by a shark. With four cases out of a population of over 300 million, it may be less than the risk of the shark eating you [while] being struck by lightning. We massively exaggerate the exotic risks we can least control and massively undervalue the mundane risks we can control.”
