I am very respectful of healthcare workers who have chosen to go overseas to try to help diagnose and treat patients involved in these horrible epidemics.
It is indeed a great responsibility, and it is also a great responsibility not to inadvertently bring the disease, Ebola virus in these recent cases, back to the United States.
There have been now three nurses, at least three doctors and one journalist who have been infected. Do we know the transmission? They are in the highest potential for exposure and it seems reasonable to me that they should willingly agree to imposed quarantine for the sake of our nation’s population.
I don’t want to be on an airliner from New York City sitting next to a passenger who gets a fever 30 minutes after takeoff, and I doubt anyone else does.
Never miss a local story.
