So, re. the presser, which I missed -
Will they cave into pressure and let the Hissy Fit Nurse out of quarantine?
From the messages I read about the presser, it would seem they're trying to backtrack on the quarantines and will cave into the White House demands to end them.
Under New York's revised guidelines, health care workers who had contact with Ebola patients will be confined in homes for 21 days; state will check health twice-a-day, provide food - @nytimes

Health officials said Dr. Craig Spencer, who was admitted to Bellevue on Thursday and tested positive for Ebola, is entering the next phase of the illness. Doctors said he is awake and communicating but his symptoms are worsening. He's being kept in isolation and is receiving an anti-viral therapy as well as plasma therapy, both of which have been used to treat other Ebola patients in the United States. - See more at: jamestown.twcnews.com...< br />
The materials taken out of the unit will be examined by the CDC. Cellphone video was taken from inside by Bio Recovery Corp, the crew that cleaned out Spencer's apartment.
Dr. Craig Spencer, who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Africa with Doctors Without Borders and was diagnosed in New York Thursday, received the transfusion at Manhattan’s Bellevue Hospital Friday, the hospital said in a statement. The Christian organization that Writebol worked with, SIM, confirmed the donation Saturday.
Bellevue said Saturday that Spencer, 33, is “entering the next phase of his illness” as expected, which is the appearance of gastrointestinal symptoms, but said he was awake and communicating.

Yeah i just saw this,
Keep in mind the case definition for 'suspect ebola' is very broad there is a range of differential diagnosis's that are far more likely to be causing the symptoms that are reported. Ive never personally gotten off a plane journey that as more than 5 hours without having a fever or other illness, especially given where he is travelling from there is lots of potential conditions, hopefully this young boy will be another closed case.
JUST IN: Quarantined nurse, Kaci Hickox, who tested negative for Ebola in N.J. is being released
