Science Quotable: Kamran Kahn on spread of Ebola #outbreak

“The chance of Ebola spreading out of West Africa is very, very low,” says infectious disease specialist Kamran Khan, from St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto. “But if it did spread, Paris is probably the first city on the list.”

“The volume of travel in the Conakry airport (The major city affected by the Ebola outbreak) is low,” Khan says. “Most of the flights are local. But 10 percent of the traffic goes to Paris.” That would make Paris the likeliest place for Ebola to arrive.
