CDC allowed Doctors Without Borders to bring Ebola patient onto New York City subway
Craig Spencer is a U.S. doctor who, as a participant in Doctors Without Borders, went to Guinea to treat Ebola patients.
After he got back to the U.S., he passed the so-called “enhanced screening” that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control gives to all returning travelers from West Africa.
After he passed this “enhanced screening,” he rode on the New York City subway system, went to a bowling alley, and rode in a taxi.
After that, he tested positive for Ebola.
CDC Director Tom Frieden said that people with Ebola should not ride on mass transit because they might give Ebola to someone else.
