Oh dear. Did Dr. Nancy "exempt" herself from the rules to which she demands everyone else adhere? Vaccine industry watchdog, NBC News' Dr. Nancy Snyderman appears to have been caught not taking her responsibility to "the herd" seriously. You know Dr. Nancy - the woman who, during the H1N1 scare admonished viewers, "There's no conspiracy, listen to your government, just get the damn vaccine!" Yes, the woman who tells us all that risk benefit analysis is secondary to protecting your neighbor, so called herd immunity, was spotted in Princeton, New Jersey according to several eye witneses (see below.)
Ah, the price of fame, fortune and pharma, nowhere to run or hide.
She seemed to disregard her voluntary 21 day isolation following her proximity to Ebola during a trip to Liberia on the NBC "If it bleeds it leads" disease tour. I think the mention of the "black Mercedes" by Planet Princeton (below) was a nice touch. Perhaps she thought that her car was considered isolation - tell that to the guys at the car wash....
Dr. Snyderman has been issued a full quarantine in response to her lackadaisical approach to Ebola.
Planet Princeton reported:
Several Planet Princeton readers have reported seeing NBC News Chief Medical Editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman in public over the past day.
Snyderman allegedly was seen sitting in her car outside of the Peasant Grill in Hopewell Boro this afternoon. A reader reported that a man who was with her got out of the car and went inside the restaurant to pick up a take-out order. Another man was in the back seat of her black Mercedes. Snyderman had sunglasses on and had her hair pulled back, the reader said.
An American freelance cameraman working with Snyderman in Liberia last week tested positive for Ebola. Snyderman, a resident of Princeton, was flown back to the United States with a crew member on a private charter flight this weekend. Snyderman and her crew were going to be placed under voluntary quarantine for 21 days as a precaution, NBC News President Deborah Turness announced in a written statement on Oct. 3 (see the letter below). NBC said the group would be closely monitored and was showing no symptoms or warning signs of Ebola.
On Tuesday, NBC News President Deborah Turness said in a statement sent to staff members that Snyderman and her crew were doing well and in good health. “While they are deemed to be at low risk, we have agreed with state and local health authorities that our team will not come to work, and they will stay at home taking their temperatures twice daily and staying in touch with the local health authorities for the remainder of the recommended 21-day period,” Turness said.
Snyderman is not under any kind of mandatory quarantine order by the CDC or the state because she is at a very low risk of contracting Ebola. Any confinement is voluntary.
NBC did not respond to inquiries about Snyderman today, and Snyderman could not be reached for comment.
