CDC Director Thomas Frieden gets why that’s the knee jerk reaction to such a deadly disease.

But a ban might actually make things worse, he said, because it could encourage people to lie about their travel to West Africa.

And without that crucial information, Frieden said people infected with Ebola could slip into the U.S. without the CDC being able to track and monitor them for symptoms.
