Sign Language Interpreter Goes Viral During Ebola Press Conference

Sign Language interpreter goes viral during De Blasio Ebola press conference in New York City.

NEW YORK CITY -- Video of the sign language interpreter during Mayor Bill de Blasio's news conference on New York City's first Ebola case.

While Mayor Bill de Blasio and health officials were giving updates on New York City’s first Ebola case Friday, the focus turned to another person in the room, the sign language guy.

The signer, who was seated to the right of the mayor, was enthusiastically signing throughout the press conference. It appeared as if he was talking to another signer who was seated in the audience.

Some even questioned whether he was a legitimate sign language interpreter. The Twitterverse soon noticed and tweets started taking the Internet by storm.

Within minutes of his TV appearance on Friday, people across the country had taken to the social networking site to express their delight at his efforts.

Although some people questioned whether the interpreter was legitimate, others said he appeared to be translating the Mayor's and health officials' comments via a signer in the audience.

During the conference, de Blasio commented on Dr Spencer, who went bowling in Brooklyn, rode the subway and walked the High Line before he was admitted to Bellevue Hospital Center on Thursday.

Despite Dr Spencer's activities, he told listeners: 'I want to repeat what I said last night: There is no cause for alarm,' according to CBS New York.

'New Yorkers who have not been exposed to an infected person's bodily fluids are simply not at risk. It's crucial to emphasize, it's not an airborne disease, it's not a casual contact disease.'

It comes as Dr Spencer's fiancée, Morgan Dixon, has been allowed to leave Bellevue Hospital Center in New York to return to the couple's home in Harlem.

With a pink scarf wrapped tightly around her face, Miss Dixon was pictured stepping out of an unmarked police car and walking quickly into her apartment this evening.

The 30-year-old, who has not yet shown any signs or symptoms of Ebola, is now under mandatory quarantine for 21 days, the virus's incubation period.

Meanwhile, Dr Spencer, 33, is currently undergoing treatment and remains in a 'stable' condition in isolation at the Manhattan-based hospital, which he was admitted to with a 100.3-degree fever.

According to the latest figures from the World Health Organization, the Ebola death toll is now 4,922, bringing the total of confirmed and suspected cases of the virus to 10,141.

Symptoms of Ebola include a fever, a headache, diarrhea, vomiting, muscle and joint aches and in some cases bleeding. These appear two to 21 days after exposure to the disease, the CDC said.
