A New York doctor who has recently been in Ebola-hit Guinea in West Africa has tested positive for the disease. Dr Craig Spencer, who treated Ebola patients for a charity trust, attracted fever on Thursday, days after his return. He is the first Ebola case diagnosed in New York, and the fourth in the US. More than 4,800 people have already died of Ebola, mainly in Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone since March. On Tuesday after return, the doctor began to feel tired and developed a fever and diarrhea on Thursday.
