Nurse Under Ebola Quarantine Still Throwing a Temper Tantrum

Posted by on Oct 27, 2014 at 7:33 am

The way this idiot is behaving you would think she’s being held hostage by ISIS.

An Ebola nurse under mandatory quarantine in New Jersey fumed Sunday that she is being held in “inhumane” and “prison”-like conditions — and her lawyer vowed to file suit over her involuntary confinement.

Because suing over a public health crisis is sure to win people over.

Kaci Hickox told CNN’s “State of the Union” that she was stuck inside a tent without a shower or flushable toilet, despite having no symptoms and twice testing negative for the deadly virus after caring for patients in Sierra Leone.

Hickox, 33, also said she was being forced to wear paper scrubs, had no TV or reading materials, and was spending her time staring at the walls of the tent outside University Hospital in Newark,

“I am sure that we, as the United States, can come up with a fair and just policy for returning aid workers from Ebola-affected areas,” she said in an e-mail to The Post.

“But the policy enacted on me was no such policy. We must fix this now in order to ensure aid workers are protected so that this battle against Ebola in West Africa is won.”

Hickox, who was quarantined Friday, also told CNN she hasn’t been told how long she’ll be locked up, and started to cry when she described having no temperature or other symptoms of Ebola.

Hickox said she felt “like my basic human rights have been violated,” adding: “To put me in prison is just inhumane.”

Boo fucking hoo. Prison? Really? Meanwhile, according to the idiot mayor of New York she’s a hero.

“An individual who is a returning hero needs to be treated with deference and respect,” de Blasio said. “She should have been provided with an outpouring of support, and that obviously did not happen.”

No, they need to be closely monitored for at least 21 days, moron. Do we even have to ask why?

Meanwhile, a majority of New Jersey residents believe the state is more competent that the federal government when it comes to controlling a possible Ebola outbreak.

    Prisoners at least get a minimum amount of outside time each day, she doesn’t even get that. And her crime? Helping people in Africa and then coming home to scared politician’s overreactions.
    Current best practices are to have the local health department monitor a suspect’s temperature and make sure they are staying quarantined…putting her in an isolation tent without any of the creature comforts that any American has come to expect is crazy, and this trash talk of a blog article is just click-bait. But since I bought into the click I wanted to make sure I commented.

    If people would stop going to the glorious motherland Africa and bringing back Ebola that’d be great.

    She’s a big time leftist who worked at, or may yet work at, the CDC. Her LinkedIn profile was scrubbed but Gateway Pundit has a link to a screenshot.

    My guess is that this may have all been a big fat stunt to prevent the quarantining of the countries in question. Hell, she may have not even gone to the Ebola zone for all we know. She may be a leftist, but she ain’t no fool when it comes to risking one’s life. Unless she’s totally mind-numbed to her ideology.
