Quarantined Nurse Slams Christie: ‘My Basic Human Rights Have Been Violated’
[su_right_ad]Kaci Hickox criticized the “knee-jerk reaction by politicians” and singled out New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.
Hickox, an epidemiologist who was working to help treat Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, has tested negative twice for Ebola and does not have symptoms, she said.
“This is an extreme that is really unacceptable, and I feel like my basic human rights have been violated,” Hickox told CNN’s Candy Crowley on “State of the Union.”
She described herself as “physically strong” but “emotionally exhausted.”
“I’m sorry, but that’s just a completely unacceptable statement in my opinion. For him — a politician who’s trusted and respected — to make a statement that’s categorically not true is just unacceptable and appalling,” Hickox told Elizabeth Cohen, CNN’s senior medical correspondent, in a separate interview.
