A physician who volunteered his services with an aid organization that treated Ebola victims in West Africa has been diagnosed with Ebola after being admitted to a New York City hospital.

Dr. Craig Spencer, 33, was working with Doctors Without Borders a few weeks ago, and initially told authorities that he quarantined himself after he began to experience symptoms. But reports Thursday said that, in fact, Spencer had been out in public as recently as the day before his admission, going bowling and using UBER taxis to get around the city.

The New York Daily News further reported that Spencer was practicing in Guinea, adding that he was taken to Bellevue Hospital in a protective suit, was experiencing nausea and had a temperature of 103° F, though his temperature was later reported to actually have been 100.3° F. Blood samples were taken when he was admitted, and testing confirmed that he has Ebola. Dr. Spencer had returned from Guinea 10 days prior via JFK Airport.

The paper further reported:

While Spencer was placed in an isolation unit at the hospital, city health workers began backtracking his movements since returning from Guinea.

The joke that is ‘self-quarantine’
