    Title: “NYC Hospital Tests Doctor Who Had Been To West Africa for Ebola.”
    Summary- There are many diseases that have been developed over several years. Some diseases are known to be very dangerous and deadly, others are known to be just scary although they could be treated and not cause a lot of harm to the body. In the article “NYC Hospital Tests Doctor who had been to West Africa for Ebola.” a doctor who had returned from West Africa arrived to the United States. On Thursday, he was taken to the Bellevue Hospital Center and had been tested for Ebola. He had a fever and was also experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms. If the 33 year old doctor tests positive, he will be the fourth healthcare worker who was diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. It is mentioned that Ebola can be spread by touching the bodily fluids of an infected individual. It is not transmitted by just sitting next to a person who is infected with Ebola.
