Teacher Resigns After Trip To Kenya. Because Ebola

A teacher has resigned from a school in America following a trip to Kenya - ie, a country not affected by ebola - because parents were concerned she could have contracted the disease.

The Kentucky school asked the teacher, who is also a registered nurse, to take a 21 day leave, and produce a doctor's note before she was allowed back to teach.

Instead, she walked out the door for good.

Perhaps the school should have consulted chemist Anthony England's handy ebola map...
