Dr. Spencer entered a more serious phase of the illness this weekend.
After being placed under quarantine since Thursday, Spencer’s fiancée, Morgan Dixon, was released from the hospital last night. “What we have done today is bring somebody back to where they should be — their home,” said Dr. Jay Varma, the deputy city health commissioner for disease control. Nevertheless, Dixon will have to stay inside the couple’s apartment on West 147th Street under quarantine for 21 days. Although she has no symptoms and doctors say she poses no threat of spreading the disease, a Health Department officer will remain posted outside her door 24 hours a day.
Ebola has up to a 21 day incubation period.
UPDATE: The Ebola nurse who complained about being quarantined AFTER RETURNING FROM WEST AFRICA was discharged today.
