NBC Medical Editor on Violating Ebola Quarantine: ‘I’m Very Sorry’

On Wednesday’s broadcast of NBC’s “Today,” network chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman apologized for violating her own self-imposed quarantine earlier this year.

Snyderman had been spotted outside a New Jersey soup restaurant in violation of that quarantine after visiting one of the so-called Ebola hot zones in Africa of Liberia.

“I’m very sorry for not only scaring my community and the country, but adding to the confusion of terms that I think came as fast and furious as the news about Ebola did,” she said. “Suddenly we’re talking about quarantine, isolation, controlled monitoring, who should be in hospital rooms, who shouldn’t be. And so when I came back from Liberia with my team, we had already been taking our temperatures four, five, six times a day. And we knew our risks in our heads but didn’t really appreciate — and, frankly, we were not sensitive to how absolutely frightened the Americans were. So, I came back, agreed to a voluntary quarantine in my home and 72 hours later left my home.”
