Ebola Quarantine-Breaker Nancy Snyderman Tweets About Public ‘Responsibility’ on Measles


NBC medical correspondent Dr. Nancy Snyderman was put under quarantine last fall after a member of her news crew contracted ebola during their shoot in west Africa. Snyderman then got caught breaking that quarantine at the height of the U.S.’s ebola scare, a transgression for which she apologized repeatedly and profusely. (The CDC maintained she hadn’t put anybody at risk.)

Twitter was more than happy to remind Snyderman of this sequence of events when she began tweeting about the need to consider “public responsibility” over “free will” in making sure children are vaccinated in the face of the measles resurgence:

Snyderman alluded to the “cheap shots” in a later tweet:

Snyderman wasn’t the only one this week who got tripped up by measles/Ebola two-step. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been criticized for the alleged hypocrisy in his stance that the government should allow parents “some measure of choice” in vaccines against his forced isolation of nurse Kaci Hickox last fall.
