A nurse who protested against being quarantined at a New Jersey hospital has been discharged. Kaci Hickox, who treated Ebola patients in West Africa but does not have any symptoms of the virus, threatened to sue over being kept in isolation. She was allowed to leave hospital on Monday and got into a private car bound for her home in Maine.  Once there, it will be up to local health officials to decide how to monitor her health for the duration of the incubation period, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said. The Doctors Without Borders worker had no symptoms when she arrived in Newark on Friday, but developed a fever that prompted putting her in isolation, the New Jersey Department of Health said in a statement.

Ms Hickox blasted officials over the decision, and her lawyer threatened a lawsuit, saying the quarantine violated her constitutional rights. But legal action seemed unlikely after Mr Christie announced she would be released. “She was quietly happy,” said lawyer Steven Hyman, who said he had spoken to the nurse by telephone. “She wants this part of her ordeal to be over. She wants to return to her life.” Three states – New York, New Jersey and Illinois – introduced the mandatory 21-day quarantine period for anyone who has been involved in treating Ebola patients in West Africa.

Other states, including Maryland, Virginia and Georgia, are also considering whether to impose the same regime. On Monday, the Pentagon announced that US troops returning from missions in Ebola-stricken West Africa are being placed in isolation for 21 days before returning home. “Out of an abundance of caution, the Army directed a small number of personnel, about a dozen, that recently returned to Italy, to be monitored in a separate location at their home station of Vicenza,” spokesman Colonel Steven Warren said. None of the soldiers have exhibited symptoms of the virus, Col Warren added.

Ebola Nurse To Sue Over Quarantine

Back in the US, the quarantine policies have come under criticism that they may discourage healthcare workers from travelling to West Africa to help in the fight against Ebola. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Monday recommended voluntary home quarantines for health workers returning from the region. The agency issued new guidelines that included four risk categories for those returning from West Africa. Under mounting pressure, the governors of New York and New Jersey said on Sunday evening that quarantined medical workers who did not show symptoms could be allowed to remain at home. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said: “We’re doing everything possible. Some people say we’re being too cautious – I’ll take that criticism.” Under the protocols, New York state will also pay compensation if quarantined workers are not paid by a volunteer organisation. The US quarantines followed the positive diagnosis of doctor Craig Spencer, who fell ill days after returning to his New York City home from treating Ebola patients in Guinea. He rode the subway and went bowling the night before he was admitted to hospital.

Ebola: New York Boy, 5, Tests Negative

A five-year-old boy who was under observation at a New York hospital for possible Ebola symptoms has tested negative for the deadly virus. The youngster had returned to the US from Guinea at the weekend and had a low-grade fever, according to City Health Commissioner Dr Mary Travis. The child has “travelled to one of the three affected countries and has a fever, and that’s what triggers an assessment,” Dr Travis said. The New York Post reported that the boy had been vomiting and was transported from his home in the Bronx by emergency medical workers. He is being kept in isolation at New York’s Bellevue Hospital, and will remain there “out of an abundance of caution” until subsequent tests also come back negative, said the city’s Department of Health and NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation in a joint statement.

 “The chances of the average New Yorker contracting Ebola are extremely slim,” the statement added. Doctor Craig Spencer tested positive last week upon returning to the city from treating Ebola patients in Guinea. Dr Spencer, who went to the West African country with the Doctors Without Borders humanitarian group, is also being kept in isolation at Bellevue Hospital. In New Jersey, an American nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone is being released after being quarantined despite testing negative for the disease. SOME good news again.

US Ebola Nurse Slams Re-Entry To The USA Quarantine Process


Ebola Nurse Treated Like 'Criminal'

Ebola Nurse Treated Like ‘Criminal’

By Shaun Gibson : @ShaunyNews

An American nurse criticises her treatment after being quarantined with suspected Ebola on her arrival home from West Africa. I said in a previous blog Health Workers and Nurses had been talking about strike action. These people are on the front line, coming back to a Country (USA) so ill prepared for Ebola it is untrue. As I write this, Dr. Craig Spencer is ill, he was ILL IN AFRICA! He came home, went bowling, went on a tube at a tube station (Sorry we don’t have these here) He walked through a Mall. He flew home coughing. ONLY NOW..The USA are screening all Ebola aid workers on re-entry to the USA. Sadly these brave people are getting treated like criminals, I am glad Kaci Hickox has said what many Dr’s and Nurses are saying in the USA, sadly the Medical people in the USA don’t pay out, they take money. THIS IS WHY EBOLA IS IN THE USA AND NOT EUROPE! MONEY! Hard to take America? CDC Now Admits Airborne Ebola, if Dr Spencer has spend 3 days, ill in New York coughing and leaving his spit/saliva on a hand rail or someone walked past him as he sneezed or coughed, they people have Ebola. This isn’t Rocket science here, define Airborn, then we understand how easy this is to catch when the circumstances are right. But it is STILL very yard to catch. My worry as I type is New York. We now have a 21 day  time period to wait. After these 21 days there are no fresh infected, New York dodged a bullet, if Hospitals fill up, it’s global and will effect all of the species, all over the World. America, YOU MUST WAKE UP OR YOU WILL KILL HUMANITY! Do not do this to the World

50 American people at least are being monitored today as I type and you read, I truly believe Ebola IS AIRBORN! 

An older video, I said it was Airborn, I believe it is

WAKE UP AMERICA, YOUR MEDIA IS HIDING THIS FROM YOU, EBOLA IS WORSE THAN EVEN I CAN TELL YOU, IN THE USA!

An American nurse who has been treating Ebola patients in Africa has criticised quarantine rules that keep her isolated despite testing negative. Doctors Without Borders worker Kaci Hickox returned to the US from Sierra Leone on Friday and was taken to a New Jersey hospital in case she had the killer virus. She has now been told she is free from the disease, but will be unable to leave quarantine for another 21 days. Illinois joined New York and New Jersey on Saturday night in introducing a mandatory 21-day quarantine period for anyone who has been involved in treating victims in west Africa. Other states, including Virginia and Georgia, are also considering whether to impose the same regime.

It follows 33-year-old doctor Craig Spencer falling ill with ebola having spent several days travelling around New York, riding the subway and visiting a bowling alley. Writing in the Dallas Morning News, Ms Hickox said: “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 disorganisation, fear and, most frightening, quarantine.”

She said on telling a border official she had just arrived back, she was immediately ushered into a private room before having questions “barked” at her. She said she was made to wait hours with little to eat, only to later test negative for the virus. Despite the test, she must wait in a secure facility in New Jersey until it is certain she has not contracted the disease. She said: “I… thought of many colleagues who will return home to America and face the same ordeal. Will they be made to feel like criminals and prisoners?

“The US must treat returning health care workers with dignity and humanity.” The number of Ebola cases worldwide has now exceeded 10,000, with nearly 5,000 not surviving. President Barack Obama urged Americans on Saturday to be guided by the facts about Ebola and “not fear”. Dr Spencer, who is being held at the Bellevue Hospital Center in New York, was described by officials overnight on Saturday as “entering the next phase of his illness”.

health service statement said: “The patient is awake and communicating. In addition to the required supportive therapy, we initiated antiviral therapy within hours of admission. We also administered plasma therapy yesterday.” Meanwhile, in Sierra Leone, a team from the British Army has started training residents in how to use protective equipment to reduce the spread of the disease. Many of the locals who have volunteered to help fight the virus have no medical background.

CDC Now Admits Airborne Ebola Possible But Don’t PANIC!!

Week old video, just to show how the USA Government and 100% the Media are lying to the US people!
