Quarantined ‘hero’ Ebola aid worker planning to sue over her confinement

The latest news on Kaci Hickox, the nurse currently quarantined in New Jersey under new guidelines for those traveling to the United States after treating Ebola victims in Africa, will file a lawsuit challenging the legality of her confinement:

And as you might expect, there are strong opinions on both sides of the debate regarding this move:

And earlier on today, Ms. Hicox sent out pics of her “prison-like” accommodations as a guest of the state of New Jersey:

We must admit, New Jersey can have her in nicer digs than this, no?

But even before he lawyers can get a lawsuit filed, the White House is making noise that they are none too happy with the way Governors Cuomo and Christie acted on this quarantine without discussing it with the president or the CDC first:

And then there’s this news:

Uh-oh Governor Christie. Who knows what these two are getting ready to blame on you.

Outrageous: This food delivery to Ebola family is truly unbelievable [pics]

Surely that’s not the case, right? Guess again.

But, hey, it’s cool. They are quarantined and all.

I don't understand why Duncan's family is quarantined in a contaminated apartment. Boggles the mind.

Take a look at the food delivery to the supposedly quarantined family of the Dallas Ebola patient.

BREAKING: hygeine issue within #Ebola patient residence being considered. Food being delivered.

Several days' of food was delivered to apt under containment. Contractor hired to address hygiene issues in that unit. @CBSDFW #Ebola

Yep.

@CindyReynolds Where eyewitnesses saw him throwing up when the ambulance came…nearby children playing. Pro-tip: Plan for the worse.

@Cameron_Gray @RBPundit And did you see the crew "cleaning" the parking lot? Not a hazmat suit in sight.

— Blondie203235 (@Blondie203235) October 2, 2014

As Twitchy reported, a news chopper caught a clean-up crew outside of the Ebola patient’s apartment. And it was enraging and outrageous.

And now this. It’s truly unreal.

@connortryan @nypost no gloves?

— forrest freeman (@ForrestFreeman0) October 2, 2014

@connortryan @nypost ok, y isn't this guy in a mask & gloves & the proper clothes? this shit is no joking matter

— dawn de costa (@memasbabes) October 2, 2014

Bingo. There are precautions taken for ridiculous things. And this? Whatever!

@Cameron_Gray @RBPundit No gloves, nothing! This is crazy! We wore disposable suits while cleaning paint booths.

— CJSAY (@Sr4liberty) October 2, 2014

@connortryan @nypost Shouldn't this be done by someone at the State's Health Services Department? Shouldn't he have a mask on?

@connortryan @DanRiehl Make that: *Expendible* Red Cross worker trudges thru Ebola victim’s vomit to deliver supplies…

— WitCoHE (@E__Strobel) October 2, 2014

@connortryan @DanRiehl Kinda concerned about lack of any protection.

@KraftyWurker @mkues65 @Cameron_Gray @RBPundit Seriously, Officials are NOT taking EBOLA very seriously.!! OMG so scary.

— Susan (@sueinwny) October 2, 2014

@Cameron_Gray @RBPundit Another entry in the Annals of Cluelessness. Are they trying to cause an epidemic?

Frightening.

"Don't worry. It's highly unlikely to come to the US." -> "Don't worry. He didn't have symptoms." -> "Don't worry about the clean up crew."

— RB (@RBPundit) October 2, 2014

With every new piece of information suggesting we should have worried before, we keep getting told not to worry.

— RB (@RBPundit) October 2, 2014

That’s right. And an exit much-needed reminder evidently:

#YesAllHazMatSuits

— RB (@RBPundit) October 2, 2014

Repeat often.
