Ebola in Dallas? Patient With Signs of Deadly Virus Isolated

By    |   Tuesday, 30 Sep 2014 09:13 AM

A patient showing signs of having the Ebola virus has been isolated at a hospital in Dallas, Texas.

The Associated Press reported Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas as saying in a statement Monday night that the patient’s symptoms and travel history suggest the patient may have Ebola, the virus that has killed more than 3,000 people across West Africa.

The hospital expected to receive preliminary test results Tuesday from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Presbyterian Hospital says it’s taking measures to keep its doctors, staff and patients safe.

In New York City, a patient kept in isolation at Mount Sinai Hospital on suspicion of having the Ebola virus eventually tested negative for the disease.

The patient, whose name wasn’t been made public, arrived at the emergency room early the morning of Aug. 4 with a fever and gastrointestinal problems after traveling recently to the region of Africa experiencing the worst outbreak of Ebola. At the time, the hospital said it was unlikely the patient was infected with the virus and the move to isolation was from an abundance of caution.
