…and then, feeling fatigued, goes bowling.
“He did not have a stage of disease that creates a risk of contagiousness on the subway,” Dr. Mary Bassett, the city health commissioner, said. “We consider it extremely unlikely, the probability being close to nil, that there will be any problem related to his taking the subway system.”
Still, out of an abundance of caution, officials said, the bowling alley in Williamsburg that he visited, the Gutter, was closed on Thursday night, and a scheduled concert there, part of the CMJ music festival, was canceled. Health workers were scheduled to visit the alley on Friday.
So, the chances are nil. But lets close the businesses he went to. Cancel events. And send the health workers in.
The good doctor should have laid low upon his return from west Africa.
Fatigue is a symptom, is it not?
UPDATE: Relatives of the good doctor cry foul as he is criticized. I call BS. You were in West Africa and thus at high risk. You felt unusually fatigued on Tuesday last week. Then you traipsed around potentially placing who knows how many at risk. No need to leap to the man’s defense – I’m glad he was there. But common sense man.
I have many memories of Canada. Growing up in the Detroit area, traveling to Windsor, Ottawa, Niagara Falls, camping, fishing, canoeing in the great Canadian wilds… . Unlike our southern neighbor, they don’t have cartel wars, their masses don’t clamor to cross our borders, and their leaders don’t slam whatever measures some here may take to address their failures.
Canada is like the uncle you actually like to see at Thanksgiving dinner. Dependable. Calm. Stable.
They also have a realistic take on domestic terrorism. They don’t call events there over the last week “workplace violence.” They don’t hedge on comments related to that terror. They tell it like it is.
Our current administration should take note. Wait, I forgot: Obama is irrelevant.
Two more years of this nonsense.
