Doctor who treated Ebola in Guinea isolated at Bellevue

BESTPIXSpencer Platt/Getty Images Bellevue Hospital staff demonstrate earlier this month the protective clothing they’d wear while treating an Ebola patient — and on Thursday a man who just returned from Guinea, where he had been treating people with the disease, was rushed to Bellevue with a fever.

A 33-year-old doctor who just returned from treating Ebola patients in Africa quarantined himself inside a Harlem apartment with a fever — and has now been rushed to Bellevue Hospital, the Daily News has learned.

The drama unfolded shortly before noon on W. 147th St., where FDNY hazardous materials specialists sealed off the apartment as EMS rushed the doctor, clad in an exposure suit, to Bellevue.

He told authorities that he recently got back from Guinea, where he had been treating patients.

He is suffering from a fever, but it is not yet clear if he has Ebola or another illness.
