As a result of their screaming crazy stuff, New York and New Jersey have put a mandatory 21 day quarantine in effect for all medical professionals coming back from trying to stop Ebola in Africa.
Speaking of "distress" on nurse, Kaci Hickox, who recently came back from working with Ebola patients wrote about her distressing ordeal of being put in New Jersey's new mandatory 21 day quarantine.
NURSE HICKOX: “I am a nurse who has just returned to the U.S. after working with Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone - an Ebola-affected country. I have been quarantined in New Jersey. This is not a situation I would wish on anyone, and I am scared for those who will follow me.
I am scared about how health care workers will be treated at airports when they declare that they have been fighting Ebola in West Africa. I am scared that, like me, they will arrive and see a frenzy of disorganization, fear and, most frightening, quarantine."
Nurse Hickox did not
test positive for Ebola but that did not stop science failure Chris Christie from not understanding
was "not tested positive" means.
CHRISTIE: “I hope she recovers quickly, and we’re going to do everything we can in New Jersey and in our public health system to make sure that she does.”
In a telephone interview on Saturday night, Ms. Hickox’s father, Leon Hickox, told the New York Times that his daughter “is not ill in any way.”
So yeah, Christie ... umm ... and what is it you "hope she recovers quickly" from? Sheesh, science deniers.
Republicans, including but not limited to, Darrell Issa, Pete King, John Mica etc are intentionally stirring partisan confusion which is giving rise to calls for mandatory quarantine which will only discourage medical professionals from going to Africa to actually stop the spread of Ebola and that is reckless and we should demand it be unacceptable!
These Republicans don't have the balls to even pick up a science book to learn let alone have the balls to go to Africa to help stop the spread of Ebola. Instead actions by Republicans is to demonize medical professionals who are helping stop the spread of Ebola.
NURSE HICKOX I had spent a month watching children die, alone. I had witnessed human tragedy unfold before my eyes. I had tried to help when much of the world has looked on and done nothing.
Not only are Republicans doing absolutely nothing to help stop the spread of Ebola in Africa, actions by Republicans will actually increase the spread of Ebola in Africa as their actions will discourage professionals from stopping the spread of Ebola in Africa.
NURSE HICKOX: We need more health care workers to help fight the epidemic in West Africa. The U.S. must treat returning health care workers with dignity and humanity.
Yup, leave it to Republicans to actually discourage professionals from stopping the spread of Ebola in Africa (SMFH).
