If there was a major outbreak people wouldnt get to the hospital and thee wouldnt be any need to do lab tests.
It would be assumed everyone had it and would be required to stay indoors.
There would be a military curfew,anyone showing any of the symptoms would be assumed to have ebola and treated as such regardless.
There wouldnt be any lab tests,it would be undoable and pointless.

With an incubation period this long no one would even know that the outbreak started. Thats why I'm saying initially it would be extremely difficult to know there is an outbreak, let alone contain it.

Look, this entire ebola outbreak could be bullshit, all of it.

But the sheer lack of ability for any western healthcare system to contain an outbreak is not bullshit. Viruses literally evolve to use our own immune responses to multiply, if it gets to a place where immuno compromised people are already struggling, it's like a buffet.
