The real heroes are the veterans who defend our nation, not doctors that do not self quarantine themselves after they come back to America from being in areas with deadly diseases, such as Ebola.
Earlier today applause greeted New York Dr. Craig Spencer as he spoke publicly for the first time after being cured of Ebola.
Wearing a blue sweater and smiling during the press conference at New York's Bellevue Hospital, the Spencer seemed to be the picture of health after less than a month since he was diagnosed with the deadly Ebola Virus.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (Democrat) welcomed Spencer back to his "normal life."
Spencer stood beside the mayor. De Blasio urged him to give the mayor's wife a hug. Then, de Blasio and Spencer hugged.
It's a "good feeling to hug a hero," de Blasio said.
However Craig Spencer is not a hero. He, through his selfish actions, put millions at risk when he returned from Africa.
His first few days had Dr. Spencer riding the subways and going bowling even the day he became visibly ill with the virus! His actions created the term Ebowling.
If Dr. Spencer was truly a hero, he would have done the right thing and quarantined himself for 21 days to make sure he did not bring the virus back with him. He did not take this necessary protocol and because of this, he is not a hero and should not be treated as such.
The real heroes are those that are going over to Africa to fight Ebola and are quarantining themselves to not get the general public contaminated.
I do hope that Dr. Spencer is aware that the virus is still in him for at least another 3 months. In men the virus remains in their reproductive system for 3 months and the virus can still be spread through the exchange of fluids.
