As you probably recall, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, chief medical editor for NBC News, traveled to Liberia last year, where she was in contact with a freelance photographer who had been exposed to Ebola. When she returned to New Jersey, she was quarantined for 21 days… well, that is, until she was spotted outside a restaurant, getting herself some soup.
Brian Williams brought on infamous Ebola quarantine violator Dr. Nancy Snyderman on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News for her take on the resurgence of measles. Dr. Snyderman underlined that “it’s inherently important that those of us who are healthy vaccinate ourselves to protect those who are less vulnerable in society. That’s why it’s called public health.”…Of course, the NBC chief medical editor possibly put the “less vulnerable in society” at risk when she got take-out after returning from the Ebola hot zone in Africa….
Snyderman was then mocked on Twitter, and here is her response:
To set the record straight: #1 I was not exposed to Ebola #2 It was not soup #3 Vaccinations save lives…wish there were one for Ebola

Oh wait…It was not soup?
Thanks for clearing that up, Nancy.
