Re "Families urge resumption of adoptions from Congo" (Nation/World, July 25): The Ebola virus demands that extreme care be exercised when bringing children from Africa to homes in the United States. It is nice to be well-intended about the plight of innocent children, but to potentially unleash the Ebola virus on our country would be catastrophic for our country.

Very little is understood about the Ebola virus and the death rate is 90 percent.
