Officials all across America have imposed laws that those health workers who are returning from Liberia and other such countries after treating Ebola patients will have to follow the rules of being quarantined for twenty one days. As with such a law, these health workers would be under observation and if any symptom does occur, it could be immediately treated and ended in its initial stage itself. And the law is not voluntary, all health workers and high risk travelers have to follow these rules.
According to Governor Chris Christie, ‘My obligation is to all the people of New Jersey and we are just going to continue to do that. That’s the common sense approach that the federal government was not taking. That we first took in New Jersey and then New York. That’s now been adopted by Chicago. This will become national policy because its smart, tough, common sense policy’.
But somehow most of the people are disagreeing on this law. As according to doctors, health workers cannot spread Ebola as the virus spreads only through emission of bodily fluids such as vomiting, diarrhea or even fever. But if a person is not showing any sign quarantining them for such a long period of time doesn’t makes any sense at all. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV
