Australian MP slams volunteer Nurse for ‘putting nation at risk' after Ebola scare PDF Print E-mail

Australian MPAn Australian Federal MP Bob Katter has condemned a nurse for putting her nation at risk after volunteering in Sierra Leone –a West African nation endemic with the deadly Ebola virus.

Ms Sue Kovack returned to Australia on Tuesday from a one-month Red Cross duty and reported feeling a fever on Thursday. Initial test on Friday morning turned out negative but she is still under observation and has been quarantined at Cairns Hospital.

Chief Health Officer of the hospital Dr Jeannette Young explained,

'This is a necessary precaution given the patient has been to West Africa and has had a fever within the incubation period of 21 days. For the sake of her health and to follow due diligence, we want to be sure she is clear of Ebola virus disease as well as any other disease.'

But the Federal MP noted for blunt views would rather wish the 57-year old Ms Sue Kovack had not even dared helping Ebola victims in Sierra Leone.

He branded her return to Australia as 'unbelievable and incomprehensive' in view of the epidemic proportions the disease has taken in Sierra Leone.

She explained, as people move out from their homes, they touch the door knobs, car handles, stair railings that other people have already touched. They also come into contact with bacteria that cause diseases, which means the only way people can avoid transmitting the bacteria their hands pick up, is by washing their hands with soap and water.
