His eye is infested with Ebola.
The New York Times examined the after effects of Dr. Ian Crozier’s near-fatal fight with Ebola and found that some of his struggles, including an eye that is teeming with the disease, are similar to problems being voiced by other survivors of the illness in Africa. The doctor called it “post-Ebola syndrome.”
Crozier, an American, was diagnosed with Ebola while volunteering to treat the illness in Sierra Leone. He was flown to the United State for treatment.
In addition to infected eyes, he has dealt with joint pain and fatigue, according to the New York Times.
“It felt almost personal that the virus could be in my eye without me knowing it,” Cozier told the Times.
