    Patient in New York City Tests Positive for Ebola

    A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, becoming the city’s first diagnosed case.

    The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital on Thursday and placed in isolation while health care workers spread out across the city to trace anyone he might have come into contact with in recent days. A further test will be conducted by the federal Centers for Disease Control to confirm the initial test.

    Told you so. If a physician of his training can not only contract but travel with ebola we NEED to close those nations to travel. This is BASIC stuff folks, no epidemiology or infectious disease training needed. The African nations that have restricted travel (even while being located between outbreak nations) have prevented this disease from spreading into their countries.

    You didn't see the other threads started just a couple of minutes before yours?
    I have CDO, it's like OCD but the letters are in alphabetical order like they should be.

    But our President says everything is fine, and if ever there was a man whose word the whole country could trust, it's Barack Obama. Plus, he's really smart--he went to Harvard Law School, and everything, and he won a Nobel Prize. I'm sure he knows all about these medical things.

    Dont forget the political operative "Ebola Czar"! No doubt he will be furious when he finds out about this on the news.

    I've treated hundreds (maybe thousands) of ID patients, from TB to MRSA, to tropical diseases. Part of that treatment is preventing its spread to anyone, medical staff, nursing staff, or other patients.

    You can't have an iso ward without isolation, and the POINT is another "unscheduled" visitor has just spread the disease. Am outbreak of a highly contagious viral hemorrhagic disease with up to a 90% mortality is not the place to lax. And you are lax.
