Ebola in the Big Apple?

Doctor who treated Ebola victims in Guinea in isolation at New York City`s Bellevue Hospital with Ebola symptoms...

 The condition of Dr. Craig Spencer, who recently returned from Guinea after working with a team that treated victims in the outbreak of the deadly disease in the west African nation, were described as Ebola like in nature. Suffering from nausea and a fever of 103, he was quickly placed in an isolation unit as a precaution as test results for the highly contagious disease were expected to be at least 12 hours from completion. Reports of the Doctor being in a public setting at a bowling alley on Wednesday, are setting off alarm bells as health officials scramble to contact anyone who may have came into contact with the Doctor in the recent days. Hopefully the tests will prove negative, but at this point, it does not look good!

UPDATE...Worst fears confirmed. Doctor tests positive for Ebola!
