Shocking video footage shows two NYPD officers dumping their protective gear in a public trash can after leaving the area near the apartment of Ebola victim Dr. Craig Spencer.
The clip shows the officers placing their gloves, face masks and caution tape in the trash and then walking away from the scene outside the Harlem apartment of Dr. Spencer, who last night became the fourth confirmed Ebola victim in the United States.
It is not known whether the two officers actually entered Spencer’s apartment, although putting the items in a biohazard bag out of an abundance of caution would make sense. Placing them in a public trash can on a busy sidewalk in a major city is ludicrous.
The incident serves as a reminder that unprotected workers used a pressure washer to clean up the vomit of Ebola patient zero Thomas Eric Duncan outside an apartment complex in Dallas where Duncan was sick all over the sidewalk according to eyewitnesses.

Concerns about other individuals potentially being exposed to Ebola are paramount after it was revealed that Dr. Spencer violated his voluntary quarantine to go bowling on Wednesday night the day before he was admitted to hospital.
Spencer, who returned after treating Ebola patients in Guinea, also took an Uber cab to and from the location, potentially exposing the driver and other passengers. The doctor also used the subway as well as going for a jog.
Spencer’s fiancée, Morgan Dixon, is under quarantine at Bellevue Hospital, while his two other friends are quarantined at home.
As we reported yesterday, several doctors have told Infowars that health authorities are covering up potential Ebola cases in the United States in an attempt to prevent hysteria.
