“I’m a very well-educated, successful, intelligent person. This is insane to me, that I have an armed guard outside my door, when I’ve cooperated with everything other than the whole solitary-confinement-in-Italy thing.”--TB Guy, who flew to Europe despite being advised not to fly by Fulton County (GA) health officials
Um, no, according to the NYT and CNN, you have not cooperated with everything other than the whole solitary-confinement-in-Italy thing. In fact, you flew to Europe despite being advised not to fly by health authorities. Then you took a couple of flights within Europe. Then, you flew home via Canada because (you say) you thought you'd be on a no-fly list. (Is it possible, though, that you thought the CDC would ask you to stay put in Italy because you have XDR TB, a strain of the disease that is "often fatal and [which] had become a growing public health threat in many countries?") Then you drove to New York. So instead of only people in Georgia being exposed to you, now people en route to France, in France, en route to Canada, in Canada, and in New York were exposed to you. And that doesn't even count whoever you exposed to TB on all those flights within Europe.
Note to TB guy: the fact that you are a "well-educated, successful, intelligent person" does not exempt you from following the rules, even if they come in the form of "advice." And even if all you received was "advice," wouldn't a person as terribly well-educated and intelligent as you claim to be think flying all over the planet with TB was a pretty lousy (and selfish) idea? Sheesh.
Update: Now CNN is reporting that this clown wants to fly to Denver for treatment and that he went to Prague, too.
