After all, Spencer knew the facts about contagion and Ebola. He might have erred on the side of caution and put himself in isolation in West Africa for 21 days, after caring for the last patient. But, no, he came back to New York and roamed the city freely. He used the subway. He bowled. He socialized with his fiancee who is now in quarantine at Bellevue.
To so many of us his behavior seems so reckless. The city is in panic. That's such needless suffering.
We who lobbied against wrongs such as segregation and the VietNam war should lobby for mandatory quarantine for anyone who visited West Africa.
