Ebola Overreaction of the Day: Teacher Resigns After Trip to Kenya

Maybe the administration at this school should take some geography lessons of their own, and a chill pill.

A Kentucky teacher (also a registered nurse), who visited Kenya recently, has resigned from her job after parents at the school raised concerns about Ebola.

The school asked her to take a 21-day leave and produce a doctor's note before returning to work, but she walked out the door instead.

British chemist Anthony England, who has spent a great deal of time in Africa, created and tweeted the above map to highlight the areas in Africa where the Ebola outbreak exists and why our fears are unsubstantiated.

"Ignorance & misinformation is a big problem with Ebola. So a clueless Kentucky school causing the resignation of a teacher because she spent time in Kenya is just idiocy," England said.
