Calming Local Ebola Fears

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

The first confirmed case in New York – a doctor who recently returned from a medical mission – launched efforts to assuage concerns and educate the public on how the virus is spread.

Meanwhile, Dr. Craig Spencer remains in isolation at Bellevue Hospital as authorities are retracing his movements in the days before his diagnosis – including a trip to a Brooklyn bowling alley.
