People can contract both the flu and Ebola concurrently.

The chances are low, but real, this time of year. However, what about when the flu season arrives? Are these people thinking correctly? Have they also never heard of Typhoid Mary, an infected person that is spreading the disease, but that is asymptomatic themselves? What about that low, but real, possibility?

Each person quarantined would have to be separated from every other quarantined patient. If they were group housed, the uninfected people would not only be at a much higher risk of contracting the virus, the chances of the virus mutating into a more virulent form would also greatly increase. These people are absolutely crazy.
