A doctor who traveled back to New York from an Ebola-stricken region was rushed to the city's Bellevue Hospital Thursday to see if he's been infected with the deadly virus, various news reports said. Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, reportedly was working in Guinea, one of three nations fighting an Ebola outbreak, for Doctors Without Borders. He returned to New York 10 days ago and had quarantined himself in his Harlem residence, apparently in the 147th Street area. He was rushed to Bellevue with a fever of 103 degrees, while firefighters in hazardous materials suits sealed off his apartment.
