Cambodian risk to catch Ebola
The US cases of Ebola importation came through medical personnel who have been working in direct contact with sick people – in the Cambodian case, doctors and nurses are too busy doing money and don’t mind too much about their own Cambodian country people, so the probabilities that Cambodian doctors and nurses offer themselves to assist Ebola patience in West Africa is very much low, at least you offer to them some 2,000 USD per month to go with all included (good food, good hotels, the best airlines and karaoke on weekends.)
The other risk could be that Ebola could be imported to Cambodia by the upcoming tourist high season. West Africans still a very low contributors to the growing Cambodian tourism, but it could come through Europeans and North Americans who are consecrated travelers (visiting all continents). Once more, cases have been brought out of West Africa by medical humanitarian volunteers from those regions, so it is little probable that some of them would like to come to enjoy the Angkor temples while people are dying in West Africa (remember: humanitarian volunteers don’t think in enjoy life, but to serve others.)
Therefore, I calculate the risk to be contaminated by Ebola in Cambodia in 1 in 300 million (we are 15 million Cambodians) very much inferior to the US logarithmic scale (see article, 1 in 13.3 million.) It makes us safe (from Ebola), while we are much more exposed to die by malaria, diarrhea, paludisme, lighting strikes, HIV, domestic violence, human trafficking, land eviction and freedom of expression (Are we really safe?)
Anyway, in this upcoming high season, it would recommendable to increase safety measures in our two international airports, the Sihanoukville port and the land international gates placing medical personnel at the control spots to check all passengers coming from abroad. An Ebola patient in Cambodia would be a disaster, unlikely in US. Specially passengers coming from countries where there have been Ebola cases such as US, Australia, some European countries.
