A: Asymmetric transport: Easy to get in and hard for anyone to get out unless they go through screening or isolation when they are elsewhere.
A: We have to compare two scenarios: No partitioning with the resulting larger outbreak, longer time to contain and greater costs of containment, against the costs of partitioning. Given the $1 billion dollars that are expected to be needed to contain the outbreak today, the costs of partitioning can be much more limited if they are done well.
A: By preventing the disease from spreading, more healthcare workers can go to the areas that are infected and provide much more rather than less care.
