Nurse Kaci Hickox who has recently returned from West Africa where she was treating victims of Ebola, was quarantined upon return to the US. Hickox flew into Newark International and due to restrictions set by New York and New Jersey, she was held in an isolation tent outside a University Hospital.
Hickox had a fever and was kept under close watch, though the tent wasn’t even remotely respecable. There were no showers, zero heat and a box for a toilet. She called upon a lawyer stating that her civil rights were being violated. She was released Monday by NJ Gov. Chris Christy and driven back to Maine where she was expected to continue her 21 day quarantine at home.
Though Hickox has yet again ignored health laws. This morning in Maine she went for a bike ride with boyfriend, Ted Wilbur. She answered several questions from NBC News stating, “I hope that we can continue negotiations and work this out amicably. There is no legal action against me, so I’m free to go on a bike ride in my hometown.”
Hickox claims to have no symptoms of the deadly virus, which can only be spread if a victim is experiencing nausea, vomiting and a high fever.
