    So "freedom" trumps public safety? Its not like we are talking about the flu or some other bug we have a handle on. Healthy people have died. And in short order.

    In this case where she is a nurse and qualified to know when she was showing symptoms, yes, her freedom trumps your paranoia. Even the CDC doesn't agree with you and I'll take their word over YOUR paranoia.

    Where? Not in North America. Come to think of it, if they were healthy, they wouldn't have died.
    Don't work out, work in.

    No. They must be balanced. Freedom can only be restricted when there's a compelling to and no less offensive remedies. In this case
    quarantine was not medically justified.

    I think it was balanced. We had others that were sick, dying, dead and some that had already traveled. I think, while not pleasant, she was treated alright.
    Being a "medical professional", you would think she would put others a head of her petty needs.
    But clearly her and many of her ilk are only in it for the money.

    There are other diseases that are much more widespread and kill more people than Ebola, already in this country and abroad. What makes Ebola worthy of iron fisted quarantine while influenza does not?

    Ebola can and does many times kill the otherwise healthy. Have you not been paying attention?

    Or perhaps being a medical professional she realized that she wasn't a danger to anyone else and saw no reason for the quarantine. Perhaps the governors of NY and NJ pandered to the unwarranted and irrational fears of the electorate to gain popularity and garner more votes in an election year (for Cuomo)

    The point of the quarantine is to isolate people who are sick and can infect others. She wasn't sick - they wanted to quarantine her to see if she developed symptoms. Given that the goal of seeing if she becomes sick can be accomplished by much less offensive means and given further that even if she does have the disease she can't transmit it until she does develop symptoms the quarantine was unwarranted.
