I did a search, but couldn't find this anywhere...but according to hospital officials it is "unlikely" that the patient admitted to Salt Lake
City's Primary Children's Medical Center with concerning symptoms actually has the Ebola virus.
SALT LAKE CITY — A patient with symptoms that "raised some concern for Ebola" was admitted into Primary Children's Hospital, officials announced
The patient had recently traveled to a country in Africa where transmission of the Ebola virus has not yet been reported, according to Primary
Children's Hospital's chief of pediatric infectious diseases, Dr. Andrew Pavia. He said the patient was admitted Wednesday.
"While we have determined it is unlikely that the patient has Ebola virus, Primary Children's has taken this opportunity to use the emergency plan
that we have been working on for the past few months in order to provide the maximum protection to staff, patients, families, and the greater
community in the event we do have a patient with an Ebola infection in the future," a statement from Primary Children's Hospital reads."
