This is great news! Dr. Craig Spencer, who was diagnosed with ebola and caused a bit of a FEAR-BOLA scare in NYC, has been successfully treated! This case further supports the science, which says early treatment is crucial… but if initiated can be quite successful.
“Dr. Spencer poses no public health risk and will be discharged from the hospital tomorrow, Tuesday, November 11th,” the city health department said in a statement.
So far there have been no additional ebola cases in NYC following any potential exposure from Dr. Spencer. So glad that this hero who worked in Guinea with Doctors Without Borders is well!!!
