A case of Ebola has made its way to New York City.
A 33-year-old American physician who returned from working in the Ebola hot zone in West Africa about 10 days ago is now in isolation at Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital.
He was rushed to the hospital Thursday morning with a 103-degree fever, nausea, pain and fatigue. Of major concern: an official tells CNN the doctor was out in public last night, taking an Uber cab to a bowling alley in Brooklyn.
The doctor appears to have followed CDC guidelines, which state travelers from West Africa self-monitor for Ebola symptoms, but in this case, after directly treating Ebola patients, should he have been forced to self-quarantine?
The case raises further questions about whether the U.S. is doing enough to stamp out epidemics. Can the U.S., for instance, learn anything from China's draconian measures?
