It seems that nurse, Kaci Hickox is all worked up over her quarantine and isn’t honoring it. Understandably, Ms. Hickox had problems when held in New Jersey’s lamentable insolation; however she’s now at home. It appears SHE feels the quarantine is unnecessary, and it may be.
Nonetheless the question stands, why not err on the side of caution? Will spending these required amount of days in her HOME bring undue hardship? Will it cause physical pain? Will it cause non-self-imposed emotional trauma? The answer to those questions is no, on all accounts! It’s simply inconvenient. If it were me and Broda we wouldn’t chance it!
What, is the problem? Ms. Hickox claims that she desires to stand for the medical personnel returning from their benevolent missions in Ebola ridded African; but what about the public here in America? Should the many be sacrificed so that the few aren’t inconvenienced?
It is a given that the returning personnel should be treated with dignity and respect. They should be housed in safe and comfortable quarters; they should be provided with excellence in nourishment and care; and they should be kept out of public circulation until it is determined that they are 100% Ebola free. Maybe Ms. Hickox should contemplate this thought, first do no harm!
