November 7, 2014

The situation with Ebola in New York City seems to be improving.

On Wednesday, city officials announced that a person under quarantine because of contact with a doctor being treated for Ebola will be allowed to move around, though monitored.

Health officials say Dr. Craig Spencer continues to show improvement and is in stable condition. He remains in isolation and is receiving treatment.

As of Wednesday, 357 people in New York City are being actively monitored. They’re mostly travelers arriving in New York within the past 21 days from Ebola-affected countries.

The list also includes emergency medical staff who transported Spencer to Bellevue Hospital Center and those caring for him, plus laboratory workers who conducted his blood test.
