#Ebola and #Science Quotable: Nurse Kaci Hickox on why she fought quarantine

The truth is I completely understand that this town has been through a lot and there’s still a lot of fears and misinformation out there. I think we need to start addressing those issues.

The more I thought about the fact that these policies are being made by politicians, really not the experts in the field, the more I felt like I had no choice but to fight back.

I’d like to see more leadership at the national level as well. We really need evidence-based policies and these knee-jerk reactions, you know, they’re just not being well thought out. The fight is not over. – Kaci Hickox, a nurse who defied an ebola quarantine because of SCIENCE!
