Ms. Hickox, the insufferable, delicate, ‘all about me’ wallflower, who returned to the U.S. then gave everyone the middle finger when asked to self-quarantine, has been very vocal. She wrote:
“I never had Ebola. I never had symptoms of Ebola. I tested negative for Ebola the first night I stayed in New Jersey governor Chris Christie’s private prison in Newark. I am now past the incubation period – meaning that I will not develop symptoms of Ebola.
I never had Ebola, so please stop calling me “the Ebola Nurse” – now!”
Via Canada Globe and Mail – […] The woman [EBOLA NURSE] who became known in news headlines as “The Ebola Nurse” is now free to move around, after clearing the 21-day virus-free period. She [EBOLA NURSE] was interviewed this week as she [EBOLA NURSE] packed a trailer for her move across the state of Maine, to Freeport.
And, yes, she’d [EBOLA NURSE] heard about Canada’s clampdown on travel from parts of West Africa. The federal government has imposed far more aggressive rules than most countries, banning visas from Ebola-affected Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia.
“I had this terrible gut reaction,” Hickox [EBOLA NURSE] said in an interview.
“Discriminating against these entire countries, and groups of people that really need our help more than ever and need our support and our compassion more than ever, is quite shameful, actually.”
Hickox’s [EBOLA NURSE] return from Sierra Leone made her [EBOLA NURSE] a cause celebre to some Americans, and a bete noir to others. The debate closely followed political lines, as her [EBOLA NURSE] case landed in the middle of midterm elections.
Big majorities have told pollsters that they want severe travel restrictions, similar to the measures imposed in Canada. But the U.S. government has resisted, saying those measures would be more harmful than helpful. (read more)
