“Ebola Nurse” from a Physician Without Borders who sued his former leader Chris Christie over his three-day quarantine during the 2014 Ebola horror has returned to the work of the humanitarian organization again.
Kaci Hickox, of Fort Kent, Maine, worked as an infectious nurse for public health in Sierra Leone when the Ebola eruption began in West Africa.
Her LinkedIn profile now states that she is an “infection prevention and control advisor” for physician without borders in Amsterdam, Netherlands, as of October 2018. She also updated her Facebook with the new position on October 11th.
Hickox, now 37, made international headlines for weeks when quarantined when he returned to the United States from Sierra Leone.
She was taken away for health care at the Newark Liberty International Airport. A thermometer test recorded a small fever, senior officials to detain her at the airport for several hours before being transferred to the University Hospital in Newark.
Hickox was placed in quarantine in a clear plastic insulation tent of the hospital but did not detect fever when the doctor reached his temperature.
She also tested negative for Ebola on her second day at the hospital, but spent another two days there isolated
In October 201
5, about a year after quarantine, Hickox filed a trial against former government Chris Christie, claiming that her Rights have been violated “for political gain”.
Christie rejected the trial.
“I’ve been sued many times before,” Christie told a campaign event in 2015. “Come on. I’m glad to take it on.”
He apologizes for the inconvenience she experienced and stated that the only motive behind her quarantine was public health.
The trial settlement led to a quarantine “bill of justice” 2017, which states that anyone suspected of contracting the Ebola virus can not quarantine without receiving the state’s written medical motivation and a chance to challenge the decision.
