Officials retrace New York Ebola patient's footsteps, from subway rides to bowling alley

The governors of New York and New Jersey announced a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning from West Africa who had direct contact with an Ebola patient.

This comes as Dr. Craig Spencer, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in New York City, is now in stable condition. His fiancée and two other friends are all under quarantine.

Officials are now tracing all of Spencer's movements since he returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea.

Jason Carroll is OutFront with the report.

    Untracable once he hits that subway because from the 1 – A- & L lines, those people in those cars that he travelled in transferred to other trains all over the system. Some tranferred to buses and interstate trains etc. This disease will be hard to contain. Imagine 2 NYC cops who were caught on tape taking off their gloves and masks and throwing them into the city garbage bin right next to Bellevue hospitals where you have lots of derilicts who rummage through garbage bins. What if one of them pick up these items and go prowling the city? We need to step up the research and NYERS should stay vigilant.
