I missed the press conference update on the NYC Ebola patient but I saw on Fox News ticker at the bottom that states Andrew Cuomo, the governor, said the doctor had a fever of 100.3, NOT 103!! What?!! Seriously?!
This reeks of cover-up!

he may have been feeling jet lag but I hear ya...
I am pretty sure he was feeling ebola. Mainly because he has it.
You are post 666.
Back on topic; this doctor knew what he was doing. "I'm going to jog three miles in a public park, go bowling and eat at a restaurant after I start exhibiting symptoms in the most densely packed urban area in America," says the guy that just came back from west Africa almost precisely after his in initial exposure time frame.
People thought Duncan was bad. This guy takes the cake. Oh and that semen. Lol. Just like pham's boyfriend this girl has it. Where is pham's boyfriend? Who knows....

I can't imagine if it breaks out in N.Y city that would be a very bad nightmare scenario and hate to say it kiss your butt goodbye as well as me and the rest of the states there will be no way to contain it.
My conspiracy self tells me this was pre planned a long time ago....I really hope I'm wrong
Take care... I also have family there.

I wonder if they will even be honest regarding the situation in NY considering it is only 5 weeks away from Thanksgiving.
Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, followed by Black Friday sales, brings a ton of revenue into the big apple and I doubt Cuomo and his buddies will allow a little ebola to cut into those profits.
So I honestly don't think they will be honest if this doctor spread it to anyone.
Cops moved people back around 9:15 am as two officers with the Sanitation Department’s Environmental Police Unit arrived on the scene and entered the building through a side entrance. They were later joined by several people in plain-clothes who exited out of a truck belonging to the Bio-Recovery Corporation — a full service crime scene cleanup and bio remediation company. “Today we’re expecting a specialized crew [to] come in full protective gear and will clean and sterilize Dr. [Craig] Spencer’s apartment for signs of bodily fluid,” said City Council member Mark Levine, adding that officials would “confiscate material that might have come into contact with his body such as sheets and pillowcases and bath towels and toothbrushes.”
“If he was well enough to go for a run, then he was almost certainly not sick enough to be contagious,” he said. “Frankly, if he was well enough to go bowling, he was probably not sick enough to be contagious, so people should not worry.”

You've highlighted something that is important and should be pondered.
I'll take a stab at it. In the Bush, people probably don't have time or energy to be narcissistic. They're tending to the sick, right to the end. They don't heal and run back to an Upper East Side apartment. (Oh, shut up, Drwill, that's mean; you don't know Dr. Ebola from Shinola.) I know, I know. But I rest my case. Narcissism is a disease that afflicts many a doctor. In this case, it probably won't be fatal to him, but the results aren't in for the people he may have exposed.

just saw this on google searching Ebloa
The incubation period, or the time interval from infection to onset of symptoms, is from 2 to 21 days. The patients become contagious once they begin to show symptoms. They are not contagious during the incubation period.

I would find it odd that a medical doctor went to the ER to be seen for jet lag.
I just think his case is too similar to Duncans, stranger yet since he is a doctor.
I agree on the quarantine. Good move by NY and NJ.
CHICAGO -- The Illinois Department of Public Health has announced a 21-day mandatory quarantine for those who've had direct contact with West Africa Ebola patients.
Illinois' action on Friday follows that of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The two issued a mandatory quarantine for travelers after a physician who returned to New York City a week ago from treating Ebola patients in Guinea fell ill with the virus. Dr. Craig Spencer rode the subway, took a cab, went bowling, visited a coffee shop and ate at a restaurant in the city after returning home.
Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn says the order is a "common sense step" to ensure residents will be protected from potential exposure to the virus.
The order will be implemented by local health departments across the state. Previously, these high-risk individuals were subject to a voluntary quarantine.
No Ebola cases have been reported in Illinois.
