– Admitted at Bellevue Hospital in New York City
A child who was in West Africa within the past 21 days, is being tested for the Ebola virus after developing a fever on Monday while under observation at Bellevue Hospital in New York City, the hospital said in a statement.
According to sources, the patient was taken to the hospital Sunday night by emergency workers wearing protective gear after it was reported the child had a fever, the hospital said. But the patient did not actually develop a fever until Monday morning. The patient is being tested for the Ebola virus given the child’s recent travel history and pattern of symptoms.
