Ebola in New York: Doctor Who Served in Africa, “Reckless” After He Returns to US

Escort of physician with Ebola in New York City.

The first Ebola patient in New York City has been announced Thursday night.

Dr Craig Spencer served in West Africa, and returned to the United States last week. He felt fatigue as early as Tuesday after jogging but spent time in “The Gutter” bowling alley, traveled in the subway public transportation (A-Train and L-Train), and used the Uber car taxi service. On Thursday Spencer became sick with a fever and diarrhea and was transported to Bellevue Hospital by specialized transport teams with FDNY. New York city and state officials announced his confirmed Ebola infection after 9:00 p.m. Thursday. No federal officials were part of the press conference.

Department of Public Health workers were canvassing his neighborhood Thursday. Two of Dr.Spencer’s friends, his girlfriend, and one of the girlfriends of one of his friends have been quarantined, as officials warned last night that Ebola is “not contracted through casual contact.”

The bowling alley has now been closed as several media sources and news contributors call for a quarantine of all people known to have had contact with Ebola-infected people that are arriving in the United States. NYC health officials report they did not order the closure of the bowling alley, but the owners decided on their own to close the bowling alley.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control authorities have told Uber that neither the “driver partner nor any of his subsequent passengers are at risk.”

Dr. Spencer was in Guinea until October 14, 2014 and arrived in the United States at JFK International Airport, via Europe, on October 17, 2014 officials said. Some media contributors have questioned the recklessness of doctor or the guidelines that permit a person with Ebola exposure to walk among heavy populated areas when the margin of “symptoms and contagious” and “symptom-free and non-contagious” is unclear.

An emergency room doctor, Dr. Craig Spencer, who recently returned to the New York City after treating Ebola patients in West Africa has tested positive for the virus. He’s quarantined in Bellevue hospital.
