    An update on Dr. Spencer:

    The condition of New York City’s first Ebola patient, Dr. Craig Spencer, worsened on Saturday, though he remained awake and communicative, health officials said.

    Dr. Spencer, 33, was “entering the next and more serious phase of his illness, as anticipated with the appearance of gastrointestinal symptoms,” Ana Marengo, a spokeswoman for the city’s public hospital system, said in a statement. Dr. Spencer has been in isolation at Bellevue Hospital Center since Thursday, when he reported having a fever of 100.3 degrees.

    The statement was careful not to convey a sense of pessimism, and patients undergoing treatment can worsen before they recover. In a brief telephone interview from his room at Bellevue, Dr. Spencer spoke of his sickness in a neutral tone that seemed stripped of illusions: “I’m still undergoing treatment,” he said.

    Heya NB. Yeah I heard the one Doctor saying he would get worse before he got better.

    I am hopeful that he will recover and that these dark hours are just before dawn.

    Absolutely. Anyone knowingly spreading a deadly disease should be stopped. Just the same as a drunk driver or a killer with a knife. Knowingly endangering someones life and/or killing them should be illegal despite the weapon used.

    Re: Doctor being tested for Ebola in NYC

    What I have seen so far has been incompetence on the part of the medical field and the CDC. Medical personnel have not been properly trained and did not have the proper protective gear. Proper facilities for quarantine are not available for people that may show symptoms. We are now going to be sued for the pathetic quarantine facilities a person had to endure. What happens when we need to quarantine a few hundred people because the next so called professional decides to go to the movies or a ball game instead of following self quarantine protocol.

    The people coming back have proven they cannot be trusted to self quarantine. Reckless and irresponsible behavior is all we have seen so far. Our entire medical facilities and the CDC have proven the cannot handle a single person so far without major screw ups. God help us if dozens of people start coming back with this disease. Instead of competent professional handling of this deadly disease it looks more like Laurel and Hardy or the 3 Stooges are in charge. Smart people fear this incompetency and rightly so.
