EBOLA VIRUS SPREAD TO NYC

       

CNN reports a Doctor Without Borders physician who recently returned to New York from West Africa has tested positive for the Ebola virus, becoming the first diagnosed case in the city, authorities said late Thursday.
The doctor, identified as Craig Spencer, 33, came back from treating Ebola patients in Guinea October 17 and developed a fever, nausea, pain and fatigue Thursday. He is in isolation and being treated at New York's Bellevue Hospital, one of the eight hospitals statewide that Gov. Andrew Cuomo designated earlier this month as part of an Ebola preparedness plan.
Spencer went to for a jog, may have gone to a restaurant, traveled the city's vast subway system and went bowling before feeling ill but authorities stressed that the likelihood of him spreading the virus was low.
