Fox News Host Knows The Real Danger Of Ebola: Witch Doctors

One Fox News host has figured out what we should really all be afraid of during the Ebola crisis.

The "Outnumbered" panel was discussing the spread of Ebola to the United States on Thursday, following news that the first case of the virus has appeared in the country.

Now, there are many important issues at hand here. The infected patient who reportedly lied on his health questionnaire when entering the US... the up to 100 people who may have come in contact with the patient or his family... the Dallas hospital that initially sent the Ebola patient home even though they knew that he had been in West Africa...

But none of that was Andrea Tantaros's main concern. No. Here's the real problem at hand:

"In these countries they do not believe in traditional medical care," she said. "So someone could get off a flight and seek treatment from a witch doctor."

The issue, however, is not so much that people don't believe in traditional medicine, but that there are a serious lack of hospital beds and qualified staff members in many of the treatment centers to help. What's more, is that US health officials have said that the US is fully capable of stopping the spread of the virus, stressing that the country will not have an outbreak like that in West Africa.

Watch the video for the full clip.
