With respect, I think you have this turned on its head. If you fear 
catching this thing, the answer is not to 'ban' the event, but simply 
not to attend. Why can't the individual make up his own mind about 
whether to risk it?
Also, if I may say so, there is something that is more dangerous than 
the virus itself, and that is statistics, or their mis-use. You state, 
correctly, that many more Americans will die from this bug than died in 
the 9/11 attacks. Yet every year influenza kills ten times more 
Americans than died in 9/11. That death toll goes un-remarked, but the 
current illness demands an emotional, some would say hysterical, 
I have a horrible feeling that this bug is not the last of its kind we 
are going to encounter. I think we would be well advised to prepare for 
that occurrence rather than panic over this one. It isn't the Black 
Death, after all - the next one could be worse.
And on that cheery note I'll say G'day
