Ebola Spa: A market solution to quarantine

Mickey Kaus:  "What’s needed is a quarantine so luxurious that health care workers will look forward to it   ..   Volunteer health care workers are not exactly encouraged to make the trip to West Africa if they know they'll have to spend 21 days in a tent with a portable toilet on their return."  

The writer, a thoughtful Democrat, envisages Government buying and stocking the resort but this is the perfect public-private partnership giving private enterprise a way to prosper while serving the public good.

Personal note:  My father was born in a quarantine camp on Torrens Island near Adelaide after coming off a ship from Canada.
