To some up my question:
If a super contagious disease broke out in the middle of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), what would be the response by the US government?
I had an idea of a story where essentially a man comes in off a flight walks into the middle of LAX airport, coughs up his lungs (literally), and dies.
My idea for the story is that the government manages to quarantine LAX off before anyone can leave, trapping people inside LAX with this deadly virus and each other.
Is this possible in real life?
What would the government’s real reaction to this be?
