New York Doctor Recovered From Ebola, Set To Be Released

New York Times: Craig Spencer, New York Doctor With Ebola, Will Leave Bellevue Hospital
“Craig Spencer, the New York City doctor who became the first person in the city to test positive for Ebola, is free of the virus and is set to be released from Bellevue Hospital Center on Tuesday, hospital officials said on Monday. … Dr. Spencer’s recovery adds to the evidence that when treated in advanced American hospitals, Ebola has a far lower fatality rate than in West African field hospitals starved of doctors, nurses and equipment…” (Hartocollis, 11/10).
