Do you think NBC's Dr. Nancy Snyderman's quarantine violation warranted so much controversy?

  • Ibola is real

    I think you can never be too careful, especially when it comes to fatal and deadly diseases and illnesses. Someone of her stature should have known bette, which makes it harder to swallow. People have already died, quickly, and several are extremely sick. Someone in her position should have known better.

  • She acted unprofessionally

    By thumbing her nose at the quarantine, she was a poor role model for public health. Her behavior contained arrogance and poor judgment. And her apology was untruthful, misleading, and insulting to the intelligence of the viewers of NBC. I would like NBC to replace her with someone with more integrity.

  • It was controversial, rightfully so

    It was controversial, rightfully so. This is because Ebola is highly dangerous and people can die from it by catching sneeze droplets. And once it hits people that are around other people, it can spread wildly. We only need to look to some countries in Africa to really see this.

  • Dr. Nancy Snyderman's quarantine violation

    Dr. Nancy Snyderman was suppose to be quarantined after her cameraman/ co-worker fell sick to Ebola. Since she was handshaking-close to the infected person, Dr. Snyderman was on immediate quarantine watch. She was reported to have breached the quarantine. Dr. Nancy Snyderman was very aware that she could possibly infect someone else, if she contracted the virus herself. So, her violation should have warranted controversy because she could have inadvertently spread the virus when she was suppose to be in isolation. Her violation could have put thousands of citizens in jeopardy, so the media should have covered this key piece of info.

  • Yes, Nancy Snyderman's quarantine violation is worth being upset about.

    Anyone who has even thought about turning on the news lately knows that coverage of the Ebola problem has at times bordered on the downright hysterical. That said, the dangers of the virus are real, and while many experts assure us that a public health crisis can be avoided, this is dependent upon all parties involved following the necessary procedures. Dr. Snyderman's violation of these protocols is a perfect example of the ways in which this small problem could quickly balloon into a huge one.

  • No. We should not be ruled by fear.

    Dr. Snyderman based her actions on scientific knowledge, not fear. When did we become a nation of fearful nitwits? Oh yes, I know. When Fox News came on the air. We need to shift our trust to those willing to accept scientific facts and not fear mongering. Despite what the nattering nabobs on Fox say you can not catch ebola from casual contact. No one seems to be paying attention to the fact that no one close to Ducan has contracted ebola. When are we going to get tired of Fox crying wolf all the time?

Sorry about the double post. I don't know why that happened. Normally you can vote only once. If someone knows what I am doing wrong would you please help me out 'cause I don't want to be messing up anyone's poll.

You guys realize that you can not get ebola except through direct contact with an infected person's bodily fluid, right? What they are saying on Fox News is just flat out wrong. The people who are most likely to become infected are health care workers who come in direct contact with the patient who is profusely sweating, throwing up and with their diarrhea. Over reaction is bad because it spreads hysteria.
