After a few days of being detained and held in isolation, quarantined nurse Kaci Hickox will be allowed to leave New Jersey and return home. Governor Chris Christie explained that Hickox (who had no symptoms of Ebola) “will understand his quarantine decision ‘when she has time to reflect.'” (Why do I have the feeling that a few lanes on the George Washington Bridge will be mysteriously closed before Hickox has a chance to leave town?)

+ Could quarantining health workers actually worsen the epidemic?
