BRUSSELS (AP) — The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, returning from a visit to West Africa, which has been struggling with the world's worst Ebola outbreak, says the world must do more to confront "the greatest public health crisis ever."
A US nurse who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Africa took a bike ride early Thursday despite a state order to stay at home in quarantine. Kaci Hickox and her boyfriend rode their bicycles away from their house in the northeastern state of Maine as a gaggle of media looked on and cameras rolled, CNN reported. Controversy is raging about measures taken in some US states, such as New Jersey and New York, quarantine individuals returning from treating Ebola-infected patients in west Africa. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie let her go on Monday, and she was driven to Maine.
