A Maine nurse who battled officials over her quarantine after she returned from treating Ebola patients in West Africa says she’ll continue speaking out on behalf of public health workers.
Monday marks the 21st day since Kaci Hickox’s last exposure to an Ebola patient, a 10-year-old girl who suffered seizures before dying alone without family.
On Tuesday, Hickox will no longer require daily monitoring for Ebola symptoms, and says she looks forward to stepping out her front door “like normal people.”
But the Texas native says she won’t back away from the debate over treatment of health care workers.
Hickox says she’s concerned the “wrong people” like politicians are leading the debate over quarantines and making the decisions.
