It’s about time the health workers wake up too.. and realize how they are potentially bringing a deadly plague into the country..
On a personal level her reactions are very understandable.. but also very tone-deaf in the larger context of stopping this whole thing..
If it potentially rises from now 10.000 cases and reaches 1.4 million in Africa by the end of January, there will be a very different situation to handle….
A nurse who tested negative for the Ebola virus but remained under a 21-day quarantine in a Newark hospital, said on Saturday that she was angry and frustrated at the treatment she has recevied on her return to the United States from West Africa.
The nurse, Kaci Hickox, 33, cried as she told her mother in a Saturday morning telephone call that she was being held in a tent at University Hospital in Newark and had not been told when she could leave, only that she would have more blood tests on Monday.
“She’s lived in Burma, Sudan, Uganda and Nigeria, and she’s worked for Doctors Without Borders many times,” the mother, Karen Hickox, said in a telephone interview later Saturday from her home outside Dallas. “I think the frustration is that she went and did her good deed and her passion and her serving spirit, and she comes back to America and I just don’t feel they were very welcoming.”
