Kaci Hickox, Nurse Fighting 21-day Ebola Quarantine, Works for CDC

Fact checked
Nurse Kaci Hickox fighting against the 21-day quarantine ebola rule

Earlier today CNN reported:

Kaci Hickox was fighting Ebola in West Africa, doing what she could to treat those with the deadly disease. Now, she’s in the middle of a different fight — this time, in Maine.

Maine health commissioner Mary Mayhew said late Wednesday afternoon that, even as it continues talks with Hickox’s representatives, the state is in the process of filing a court order to require the nurse to abide by a 21-day quarantine. Mayhew cited concerns about Hickox’s hands-on role in dealing with Ebola patients, as well as “concerns about the lack of reliability and the lack of trustworthiness in the information that has been received.”

However, some interesting information unearthed today by an online user on Godlikeproductions (a popular Conspiracy forum) suggests that Kaci has previously worked for (and may continue to work for) the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the U.S.

Is Nurse Kaci Hickox a CDC insider?

According to this anonymous user:

She and/or her gov cohorts tried to scrub this important information by removing her LinkedIn profile AND by getting the Google cache of her LinkedIn profile deleted… but you can see remains of it in the search if you do this in Google.

Las Vegas, Nevada – Epidemic Intelligence Service Fellow at Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Now here’s the fun part… I just found an ARTICLE that WASN’T scrubbed and is the SMOKING GUN that she’s an f-ing CDC OPERATIVE. Download and mirror the page before it disappears!

The page being referred to can be found on the University of Texas at Arlington Magazine website. The page says:

“I always felt a strong desire to work overseas with vulnerable populations, and nursing seemed to be a perfect avenue,” she says. “On top of that, I knew there was—and still is—a nursing shortage and that I would have job security.”

It just made sense to pursue a two-year postgraduate fellowship in applied epidemiology with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Las Vegas.

Think of the CDCP’s Epidemic Intelligence Service as the CIA of public health. EIS teams respond to crises such as the West Nile virus and the pandemic H1N1 influenza outbreak. Hickox ’02 will work with the country’s top epidemiologists to analyze and improve health and disease surveillance.

Kaci’s lawsuit against quarantining has the potential to set a precedent when it comes to future quarantining in the U.S. The CDC have been contacted for comment. We will keep you updated with this story as it progresses.
