Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"
 



"A TV doctor who broke her quarantine for possible Ebola to sneak out to get take-away from her favourite restaurant has issued an apology — of sorts.

Dr Nancy Snyderman and her NBC News crew were all under quarantine after returning from to the US from West Africa where they were exposed to infected cameraman Ashoka Mukpo.

But the network’s chief medical correspondent was allegedly spotted breaking her quarantine by making a food run to a New Jersey restaurant, The New York Post reports.

To make matters worse, Snyderman issued a statement in which she failed to say sorry or take responsibility for her actions, TMZ reports.

The statement, which was read out by NBC news anchor Brian Williams on the nightly bulletin, said:

“While under voluntary quarantine guidelines, which called for our team to avoid public contact for 21 days, members of our group violated those guidelines and understand that our quarantine is now mandatory until 21 days have passed. We remain healthy and our temperatures are normal.”

The statement continued: “As a health professional, I know that we have no symptoms and pose no risk to the public, but I am deeply sorry for the concerns this episode caused.

“We are thrilled that Ashoka is getting better and our thoughts continue to be with the thousands affected by Ebola whose stories we all went to cover.”
Snyderman, who lives in Princeton, New Jersey, was spotted outside the Peasant Grill in nearby Hopewell on Thursday afternoon, according to Planet Princeton." (More)

Her "as a health professional" really pisses me off. If anything by being a doctor she should recognize the serious nature of this and be even more cooperative than a layperson.

Yea this is the one big flaw in all of our statements that we as the big developed western powerhouse nation are so prepared to deal with ebola and keep it from spreading. People are selfish and stupid.

Yeah, ask those "health care professionals" in Texas how they're feeling right now.

I think a lot of people fantasize about Mad Max times, but if that shit goes down it's going to be less like The Road Warrior more like just The Road. Grim, depressing, and you'll pretty much just want to die and get it over with.

Yep probably true. The people that fantasize about are the ones with fucking arsenals in their basements that will become the bandits.

Edit: although it would be nice to not have to go to work. hehe.

Yeah, they'll find out that bullets don't taste too good and they'll be going out and stealing from people who hoarded stuff that you can actually eat.

The no work thing is a bonus. Probably get a lot of bike rides in. Maybe not too many people on the trails.

You saying I need an arsenal to protect my stash?

That'd be pretty funny... "OK honey going for a bike ride, be back in 4 hours"

"ITS THE FUCKING APOCALYPSE"
