VIDEO: Physician being tested for Ebola in NYC

Physician being tested for Ebola in NYC, returned from West Africa 10 days ago.

An article from CNN has more details:

A Doctors Without Borders physician who recently returned from West Africa is at a New York hospital for isolation and testing for the Ebola virus, authorities said.

The 33-year-old physician, employed at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, developed a fever, nausea, pain and fatigue Wednesday night, a law enforcement official briefed on the matter told CNN. On Thursday morning, he was taken to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan for testing.

At a news conference Thursday, Mayor Bill de Blasio sought to allay public concerns about the spread of the deadly virus, saying that “careful protocols were followed every step of the way” in the city’s handling of the case. The doctor has “worked closely” with health officials, the mayor said.
