This is crazy now you know you just got back for Guinea treating hundreds of different ebola cases and patients and you decide to quarantine yourself for only the first 2-3 days your back.  Knowing it takes up to 8-10 days for symptom's. 


So you decide in your 10th day of being back knowing you don't feel peachy to hop your ass on a train. go to a bowling alley then take an Uber Taxi.  Only to have to call the CDC the next day to tell them you have a fever of 103 degrees. You cant tell me that happened over night, there's no convincing me you wasn't feeling some type of ill the night before when you decided to go out on the town. 

Now there trying to back track your life for the past 10 days so they can determine if you done infected several other people or not;  You have to think about New York City, everything is so compact you cant walk down most street without bumping shoulders with people.
 
            


Even as the authorities worked to confirm that Mr. Spencer was infected with Ebola, it emerged that he traveled from Manhattan to Brooklyn on the subway on Wednesday night, when he went to a bowling alley, and then took a taxi home.


NY Times Reports:

A doctor in New York City who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea tested positive for the Ebola virus Thursday, becoming the city’s first diagnosed case.
The doctor, Craig Spencer, was rushed to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday and placed in isolation while health care workers spread out across the city to trace anyone he might have come into contact with in recent days. A further test will be conducted by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to confirm the initial test.
While officials have said they expected isolated cases of the disease to arrive in New York eventually, and had been preparing for this moment for months, the first case highlighted the challenges surrounding containment of the virus, especially in a crowded metropolis.
