Dr. Snyderman “Very Sorry” for Violating Ebola Quarantine

NBC's chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman apologized Wednesday for violating her voluntary Ebola self-quarantine, saying on the "Today" show she's "very sorry for not only scaring my community and the country, but adding to the confusion." Snyderman traveled to Liberia more than two months ago to cover the Ebola crisis. While there, Ashoka Mukpo, a photojournalist working with her team contracted the virus. Snyderman agreed to the voluntary self-quarantine before she returned to the U.S. "I would go back tomorrow and so would my entire team," she said. "My concern is that this has been a distraction from the real issue at hand. We can’t afford to not to concentrate on West Africa."
