New York confirms first Ebola case


NEW YORK CITY: A doctor who recently returned to New York from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive on Thursday (Friday in Manila) for the deadly virus, the first confirmed case in the city, officials said. The 33-year-old—identified by US media as Craig Spencer—has been placed in isolation, in what is the fourth case of Ebola diagnosed in the United States and the first outside Texas. The patient arrived back in America’s largest city at JFK airport on October 17.
