Haphazard? U.S. Envoy Questions New Ebola Policies

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations arrived in Guinea Sunday on the first leg of her trip to Ebola-stricken West Africa, aimed at mobilizing more international effort for combating the virus, NBC News reported. Ambassador Samantha Power's trip comes after New York and New Jersey imposed new quarantine rules for medical workers returning from Africa after a doctor in New York who treated Ebola patients in Guinea had tested positive for the virus. Power expressed concern that the new quarantine policies were “haphazard and not well thought out," telling NBC News there is a chance the new regulations could set back the fight against the virus in hard-hit places.
