Dr. Craig Spencer, who survived Ebola, on surge of coronavirus instances

June 23, 20203 min read


When Dr. Craig Spencer got on the New York City subway Monday morning following an overnight hospital shift, the emergency room doctor said all the people he saw were wearing masks.

"I think that people here remember how bad it was, really just a month, two months, ago and we don't want to go through that again," Spencer, director of global health in emergency medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, said Monday on CNBC's "Closing Bell."

“We're hoping that everyone around the country learns the lessons that we unfortunately had to learn the hard way," Spencer said, as New York City enters the second phase of its coronavirus reopening while other states across the U.S. see a spike in cases.

New York City, the epicenter of the country's outbreak, has seen its daily count of Covid-19 cases fall dramatically from its late May and early April levels, when more than 5,000 new infections were frequently being reported each day. Daily cases have been under 400 for over a week, according to the city's health department.
