Craig Spencer

The first person diagnosed with Ebola in NYC lied about his whereabouts in the the days before he tested positive for the deadly disease.

Law enforcement sources say Dr. Craig Spencer, who treated Ebola patients in West Africa, lied to police about quarantining himself at home.

The NY Post reports Spencer neglected to tell police that he rode the subways, went bowling and dined out in public restaurants.

Since he lied about his movements it’s a good bet that he lied about not having a fever in the days leading up to his admission to Bellevue Hospital.

From the NY Post:

Dr. Craig Spencer at first told officials that he isolated himself in his Harlem apartment — and didn’t admit he rode the subways, dined out and went bowling until cops looked at his MetroCard the sources said.

“He told the authorities that he self-quarantined. Detectives then reviewed his credit-card statement and MetroCard and found that he went over here, over there, up and down and all around,” a source said.

Spencer finally ’fessed up when a cop “got on the phone and had to relay questions to him through the Health Department,” a source said.
