Personally I could care less. Dead people don't pay rent. But I do live among those who want to live. So why didn't this doctor stay home when he was fatigued instead of hopping on the subway to go bowling?

I hope he makes it through this terrible disease, if only because he's put his life on the line to go to Guinea to help other people who had Ebola. That wasn't a brave thing to for the people there, but it also was in our interest that he did so. The only way to bring the spread of Ebola to a halt is to do everything possible at the source, i.e. West-Africa.
I'm sure Craig Spencer, being a caring doctor who had first hand experience with the horrors of Ebola, would not have done anything that could spread Ebola if he had the slightest suspicion that he carried it.

First , there is, apparently, no need to panic; still, I believe that folks coming from the Ebola outbreak areas, ought to be quarantined, automatically; for them, and for the rest of us.
