New York Physician with Ebola












Have we waited too late in preventing Ebola from spreading throughout the world? This is the question that many are asking on Facebook. With reports of US Ebola infections, now confirmed in Texas and New York, some Americans believe that this is just the beginning. In New York, NBC news reports that a physician has tested positive for Ebola. Apparently the doctor had come from West Africa, after working with the Nobel " Doctors without Borders", through one of the "screening for Ebola airports". Mary Bassett, New York City's Health Commissioner, said the doctor arrived at John F. Kennedy Airport on October 17." At that time "he exhibited no symptoms until Thursday morning". The doctor had previously visited a bowling alley, now closed and rode the subway.   The doctor felt ill and went to New York's Bellevue hospital where he was diagnosed with Ebola. CNN reports that the physician had "intimate" contact with only a few individuals. These individuals are reportedly in isolation. Their whereabouts are unknown. Andrew Cuomo, Governor of New York, states "There is no reason for New Yorkers to be alarmed." "We've been preparing for months for the threat of Ebola with clear and strong protocols that were scrupulously followed in this instance."
