New York Doctor Test Positive To Dreaded Ebola Virus

Share This
 Craig Spencer, 33, a doctor a dedicated humanitarian on the staff of NewYork- Presbyterian/Columbia University medical centre who went to an area of medical crisis.... who lives in the Harlem neighbourhood of Manhattan, was taken to hospital in New York City on Thursday after displaying symptoms consistent with those caused by Ebola.

A preliminary test confirmed that Spencer has the virus.

The physician was transported by a team wearing protective gear to Bellevue hospital with a fever and “gastrointestinal symptoms” on Thursday.

Many fears about the disease have swirled around New York’s status as a transport hub. Airports in the metropolitan area process the majority of passengers arriving from west Africa everyday, and John F Kennedy international airport and Newark, New Jersey’s airport, are now among the only airports in the US accepting such passengers. Starting on Monday, passengers from the worst affected countries – Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia – will be monitored for 21 days after arriving in the US.
