Oh, don’t think I’ve forgotten about this. Some recent excerpts from CNN.com:
The globe-trotting tuberculosis patient who sparked an international public health incident in May said Friday that he was tricked into a federal quarantine.
Andrew Speaker, a 31-year-old Atlanta, Georgia, attorney, said he would have gladly gone into isolation if health officials had asked him to. Instead, he said they asked him to swing by a New York City hospital for testing after his European vacation, then posted armed guards outside his door.
He also noted that an early May CDC lab result — from a test that looks for evidence of drug resistance in TB bacteria genes — showed the less-dangerous TB.
