Was euthanasia for Excalibur the right choice?

Interview in the Spanish National Television, RTVE.

José Manuel Sánchez-Vizcaíno, Professor of Animal Health, said that to sacrifice Excalibur (the dog of the spanish nurse infected with Ebola, Teresa Romero) was the correct decision.

"I think it was the most appropriate thing to do", he said, given the high probability of infection of the dog and the lack of conditions to maintain biosecurity quarantine Excalibur.
