Yale student Ebola-free, but quarantined: I'm in disbelief

Amber Vinson, the second Dallas nurse who caught Ebola from Thomas Eric Duncan release Tuesday from an Atlanta hospital leaves a single person in the United States now battling Ebola.

Even without more cases, Ebola remains a hot topic of conversation around the country. That includes a debate about whether anyone should be allowed into the United States from West Africa, or at least whether health care volunteers and others coming from those Ebola-ravaged nations should be quarantined for three weeks upon arrival.

President Barack Obama said Tuesday that "monitoring and movement guidance" for those returning from the region should be "sensible," so long as it is based on science and doesn't unnecessarily prove an obstacle to those who risk their lives and livelihoods to head overseas to help those in need. So why has one volunteer who is Ebola free been under forced quarantine, with an armed officer outside his home for more than two weeks?

Anderson spoke with Ryan Boyko. He told Anderson the health department has yet to contact him about the reason for his forced quarantined.

    Just one more government festival of morons. Why aren't all of the doctors and staff at the hospital mentioned in the video in quarantine? Since it seems like the only criteria for being quarantined is some random and arbitrary gut feelings based on vicinity. What happened to the nation that could once upon a time figure stuff and use good judgement to make decisions? The clowns are running the show and it seems like most Americans like it that way.

    It's better to be safe than sorry. However, for those of you who think quarantine is outrageous, then move the student next door to you.
