New York: Doctor Treating Ebola Patients Rushed To NYC Hospital With Ebola Like Symptoms


Let’s hope it turns out to be nothing …

Update: Ebola confirmed. “Even as the authorities worked to confirm that Mr. Spencer was infected with Ebola, it emerged that he traveled from Manhattan to Brooklyn on the subway on Wednesday night, when he went to a bowling alley, and then took a taxi home. The next morning, he reported having a temperature of 103 degrees, raising questions about his health while he was out in public.” Read more.

CBS New York – “Officials are looking into a possible Ebola case in New York City.

Sources tell CBS 2 EMS crews picked up Dr. Craig Spencer just after noon today.

Sources told 1010 WINS he was rushed from a building on West 147th Street.

‘Today, EMS HAZ TAC Units transferred to Bellevue Hospital who presented a fever and gastrointestinal symptoms,’ New York City officials said in a statement. ‘The patient is a health care worker who returned to the U.S. within the past 21 days from one of the three countries currently facing the outbreak of this virus.’

Spencer, who is a physician in his 30s and works with Doctors Without Borders, came back a week ago from Guinea, where he is believed to have been treating Ebola patients.

The EMS crews responded to Spencer’s home wore ‘F Suits,’ which are Level D Hazmat gear that covers the entire body, CBS 2 reported.

‘After consulting with the hospital and the CDC, DOHMH has decided to conduct a test for the Ebola virus because of this patient’s recent travel history, pattern of symptoms and past work. DOHMH and HHC are also evaluating the patient for other causes of illness, as these symptoms can also be consistent with salmonella, malaria, or the stomach flu.’

Spencer is now at Bellevue Hospital, one of eight hospitals in New York state with specialized Ebola units.

Ebola test results are expected within 12 hours, officials said.

‘As a further precaution, beginning today, the Health Department’s team of disease detectives immediately began to actively trace all of the patient’s contacts to identify anyone who may be at potential risk,’ officials said. ‘The Health Department staff has established protocols to identify, notify, and, if necessary, quarantine any contacts of Ebola cases.'” Read more.

    The 1918 Flu Virus Pandemic infected over 500 million people across the world, including the USA, remote Pacific islands and the Arctic, and killed 50 to 100 million of them, that’s a 10 to 20 percent death rate.

    A large factor in the worldwide occurrence of this flu was increased travel. Modern transportation systems made it easier for soldiers, sailors, and civilian travelers to spread the disease.

    Now we have Jumbo Jets and the Fast Spreading Ebola Virus… With a 50 to 70 percent death rate!
