Ebola doctor ‘lied’ about NYC travels

Ebola doctor ‘lied’ about NYC travelsNew York Post – by Jamie Schram and Bruce Golding

The city’s first Ebola patient initially lied to authorities about his travels around the city following his return from treating disease victims in Africa, law-enforcement sources said.

Dr. Craig Spencer at first told officials that he isolated himself in his Harlem apartment — and didn’t admit he rode the subways, dined out and went bowling until cops looked at his MetroCard the sources said.  

“He told the authorities that he self-quarantined. Detectives then reviewed his credit-card statement and MetroCard and found that he went over here, over there, up and down and all around,” a source said.

Spencer finally ’fessed up when a cop “got on the phone and had to relay questions to him through the Health Department,” a source said.

Officials then retraced Spencer’s steps, which included dining at The Meatball Shop in Greenwich Village and bowling at The Gutter in Brooklyn.

  1. Which is the bigger lie? The one about where he traveled (if he actually did), or the one about actually having Ebola.

  2. Ebola doctor lied about travels. That’s great….now he and Obama should get along fine. They have something in common.

  3. What is scarey is even profesional people in America fear the Government and it’s law so much. That they lie to it and avoid it out of fear. That is a Government that has lost the people from top to bottom. It must reform if not to late alraedy and establish faith back in it’s self of the people. Or desend into nothing.
