  1. Don Sodora:

    In the typical ways to contain these types of outbreaks, you want to identify the patients very quickly. You want to make sure that people who are feverish and have the disease do not leave an area, the hemorrhagic fever viruses have a number of issues that make them particularly problematic with regard to transmission. They have this initial period when people are infected but don't show symptoms, and that's a problem.

  2. Chilson Foy:

    If we would have had that work ongoing, way back when, we would have had the ability to research it, to maybe even predict that sexual transmission was going to be more frequent, when a potential virus outbreak occurred, maybe we would've even been on the road to therapeutics or vaccines, but now we're kind of behind, and trying to catch up.

  3. Bill de Blasio:

    Transmission is not that easy.

  4. Jason Kindrachuk:

    We can't just think about this in terms of the athletes, because it's not only the athletes that that are going to be a part of Tokyo Olympics -- you have the organizing committees that are involved, you have all the people that are providing support, you have all the trainers, all of those are potential wheelbarrows for the virus coming into the community... You look at this idea of putting people into an international location from all over the world -- we only need one individual to kick off that transmission chain.

  5. Michal Linial:

    Whether it is 75 or 90 percent reduction doesn’t matter - it is a big drop in transmission, it means that not only is the individual vaccinated protected, the inoculation also provides protection to his or her surroundings.
