A Harlem doctor, who recently treated patients in Africa, was tested positive for the deadly disease after he was rushed to Bellevue Hospital with symptoms. As The New York Times reports, Craig Spencer, a 33-year-old Doctors Without Borders volunteer, began showing symptoms one night after he was out bowling at the Gutter in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, which is one of the venues that host the ongoing CMJ Music Marathon. He used an Uber car service to get to and from the Brooklyn neighborhood. Dr. Spencer did not report a fever until this morning, after his trip to the music venues. The Gutter is currently shut down and tonight’s CMJ events are canceled while health workers will inspect the venue tomorrow.

In a press conference, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said that there was “no reason to be alarmed.” More information on this virus disease can be found here.
