Maine Judge Removes Restrictions On #KaciHickox Right Before Report Breaks That Her Roommate In Africa Had Ebola
Now her roommate had Ebola? She also claimed to have taken care of a dying child with Ebola the night before she came back to the United States. But nothing to worry about here, because according to this last judge, people are just being irrational. Apparently, he hasn’t checked with the Nobel Prize winner for medicine who noted that you cannot rule out catching it from asymptomatic people.
Via Daily Mail:
A Maine judge gave nurse Kaci Hickox the OK to go wherever she pleases, handing state officials a defeat on Friday in their bid to restrict her movements as a precaution against Ebola.
Judge Charles C. LaVerdiere ruled Hickox must continue daily monitoring and cooperate with health officials if she chooses to travel.
The judge said there’s no need to restrict her movements because she’s not showing symptoms of Ebola. In his ruling, LaVerdiere thanked Hickox for her service in Africa and wrote that ‘people are acting out of fear and that this fear is not entirely rational’.
It was also claimed today, the 33-year-old nurse’s roommate in Sierra Leone had been treated for Ebola but the court reportedly said that any risk had passed.
