NEW YORK (AP) - Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the New York doctor who has tested positive for Ebola “obviously felt he wasn’t symptomatic” when he went out “in a limited way.”

Cuomo made his comments on NBC’s Today show Friday after being asked whether Dr. Craig Spencer acted responsibly, even though he rode the subway, bowled and rode a cab.

Spencer recently returned to the city after treating Ebola patients in West Africa.

The governor told CNN’s New Day Spencer had a slight fever of 100.3 degrees when he sought help. Spencer’s temperature was previously reported to have been 103 degrees.

Ebola patients are not contagious until symptomatic.

Spencer tested positive for the virus on Thursday. He is the first case in the city and the fourth in the nation.
