Though implied, you should mention the way the media hypes (or doesn't hype) the threat out of proportion. Risk of getting Ebola in the US, small. Is it a major problem in specific part of Africa that gets routinely ignored, yes. Also there is the whole, if it bleeds it leads phenomenon. It is better for waiting if they trumpet the dangers of something like a Y2K... rather than saying, yes this is an issue but the professionals have it handled. And bringing 9/11 into it... the evacuation of Manhattan has to be one of the most amazing and underreported stories ever.
As Bruce Schneier has said... Refuse to be terrorized.
