In further development from Dr. Craig Spencer, who contracted Ebola and is currently being treated at Bellevue Hospital. He reportedly lied to police about travelling around the city for six days before he was quarantined, it has been revealed.
Dr. Craig Spencer initially told officers that he had isolated himself in his Harlem apartment after returning from Guinea where he had been treating people for the illness.
The police had wound up checking his MetroCard and bank statements to confirm, only to realize he hadn’t been truthful. Spencer had been traveling the city for nearly a week, in the process visiting a sandwich shop, taking an Uber cab, and going bowling.
On October 23rd, when the symptoms occurred is when Dr. Spencer placed himself under quarantine. He then called Medecins Sans Frontiers who informed the New York Health Department. He was immediately quarantined. Unfortunately it had come to the officers confronting Spencer with the evidence that he confessed, according to the New York Post.
Dr. Spencer volunteered to travel to Guinea to help fight Ebola on September 16.
He spent nearly a month working in health and treatment centers in close relations with sufferers, before flying to Brussels on October 14. After a three-day layover, he landed at JFK Airport on October 17.
Worst part is, he was screened for Ebola on arrival, but had no reported symptoms and tests did not detect a trace of the deadly virus.
Good police work, to get to the bottom of this.
