A man who was hospitalized in New York City with Ebola-like symptoms doesn't have the deadly disease, officials said Wednesday
A blood sample analyzed by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention tested negative for Ebola, said officials at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Manhattan, where the man was admitted on Monday. He had presented with symptoms associated with Ebola including a high fever and gastrointestinal problems and had just returned from an unspecified West African country, where the virus has been spreading.
"The patient is in stable condition, is improving, and remains in the care of our physicians and nurses," the hospital said in a statement.
More than 900 people have died and roughly 1,700 people have been infected with the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria and Guinea, according to the World Health Organization.
There isn't a cure or treatment for Ebola, though medical experts say keeping a patient under intensive care can improve the chances of survival. It would be easier to contain an Ebola outbreak in the U.S. than in rural West Africa, experts say.
New York-area hospitals have been training staff on proper procedures for suspected Ebola cases even before the patient arrived Monday at Mount Sinai. Many have held meetings between various departments, posted signs about procedures and sent mass emails to staff.
