Governor Cuomo: Anxiety Over Ebola Is a Good Thing

With many Americans concerned about the potential spreading of the Ebola virus, Manhattan hospitals quarantining patients who demonstrate similar symptoms, and a public not emanating a great deal of confidence in the administrations ability to handle the disease, New York’s Governor Cuomo went with the silver-lining method.

Cuomo, at an appearance on CBS This Morning, said anxiety about the disease “can be healthy.”

Via the Weekly Standard:

“Ebola crisis for us … poses two separate problems: one is the medical, public health issue and the second is the panic, anxiety issue that goes along with it,” Cuomo told CBS.

“From a medical point of view, it’s a question of having the right protocols in place, making sure the hospitals understand the protocols, making sure the personnel understand the protocols, making sure they have the right equipment. And that we’re working through.

“At the same time, the dialogue on Ebola is — it’s amazing how quickly panic can set in — a little anxiety can be healthy. But we have to watch what we say and how we say it, because panic is never productive.”

I think a majority of Americans would take anxiety over their next job interview, or their team’s next game, over anxiety involving a deadly Ebola virus any day.

Earlier this year, Cuomo urged the public to temper their anxiety as he announced a new agreement with New Jersey to combat terrorism.

Cuomo also experienced his own ‘healthy’ anxiety just prior to the New York Times releasing a bombshell report that demonstrated he interfered with his own ethics panel.
