A company in Oxford has come out with an Ebola-related doll that went on sale Monday.

“The Case-E Ebola Nurse” was created by HeroBuilders and comes with an Ebola-free health certificate.

The doll bears a striking resemblance to Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined against her will in New Jersey after treating patients in Sierra Leone, one of the counties dealing with the outbreak.

Hickox was involved in a tense standoff with health officials in Maine. However, a judge eventually ruled they failed to prove the need for enforcing her quarantine.

HeroBuilders' doll has Hickox's sandy-blonde hair and other similar features. It also has a red “X” over the right eye.

The doll is on sale for $29.95.
