Oxford, Conn. (WTNH) — A toy company based in Oxford has created an Ebola themed doll that is for sale starting today.
Oxford based HeroBuilders has created “The Case-E Ebola Nurse” figure that comes complete with an Ebola-free health certificate.
While the company’s announcement does not imply any endorsement with any particular person, the doll does bear a striking resemblance to Kaci Hickox, the nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, and then defied quarantine orders in her home state of Maine.

A federal judge eventually ruled that the State of Maine failed to prove the need for enforcing her quarantine.
“The Case-E Ebola Nurse” doll has a similar hairstyle to Hickox, as well as a few other features. The doll also has a red “X” over her right eye. It is on sale now for $29.95.
