This is just ridiculous!
Last week, a few members of the NBC team that was possibly exposed to Ebola broke their voluntary quarantine to grab some takeout food.
Dr. Nancy Snyderman was among the group, and she released a statement for Brian Williams to read on NBC Nightly News, saying:
“While under voluntary quarantine guidelines, which called for our team to avoid public contact for 21 days, members of our group violated those guidelines and understand that our quarantine is now mandatory until 21 days have passed. We remain healthy and our temperatures are normal. As a health professional I know that we have no symptoms and pose no risk to the public, but I am deeply sorry for the concerns this episode caused. We are thrilled that Ashoka is getting better and our thoughts continue to be with the thousands affected by Ebola whose stories we all went to cover.”
We understand that Snyderman is a doctor, but even doctors can make mistakes, as we're seeing with the situation in Texas right now. She should understand that the public is in a kind of panic!
Plus, it's not like she can just straight up lift her own quarantine. It doesn't work like that, regardless of her credentials! The 21 day quarantine period is there for a reason!

Hopefully everyone in their crew, including the infected Ashoka, end up being fine, but we won't know until October 22nd.
Until then, no takeout food is worth the risk!
