– Maine CDC: ‘Nurse lied, roommate in Africa had Ebola’ (Intellihub, Nov 1, 2014):
AUGUSTA — Sheila G. Pinette, Director, Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), let the cat out of the bag recently, pointing out that a roommate of nurse Kaci Hickox, in Africa where Hickox worked with the CDC on infected Ebola patients, indeed has the deadly Ebola virus, making a potential recipe for disaster as Hickox intends to keep breaching her initial quarantine order wondering about aimlessly in public.
Shockingly, Pinette, Director, Maine CDC, said, “The respondents roommate in Africa became infected without knowing how she became infected with Ebola.” raising concerns, reported WAGM8.
Nurse Kaci Hickox has been mandated by health officials to remain quarantined until Nov. 10, 2014, when her 21-day period is over, clearing her for release back into the general population. Although a “Maine judge on Friday ruled in favor of a nurse who defied a quarantine in a tense standoff with state authorities, saying local health officials failed to prove the need for a stricter order enforcing an Ebola quarantine.”, as reported by CNN.
The Daily Caller reports, “Hickox has been adamant that the quarantine request is not “based on science” and her former employer, Doctors Without Borders, has warned that the quarantines are “chilling” their efforts to keep volunteers coming to West Africa to help fight the Ebola crisis there.
However, just as we saw with Dr. Craig Spenser in New York City, Hickox’s case marks the second medically trained professional to have blatant disregard for the lives and safety of all Americans by not following proper protocol.
