The CDC confirmed Monday that a potential Ebola patient is being treated at a Miami hospital.
A patient at a California hospital has been placed in isolation and is being tested for possible exposure to the Ebola virus, according to multiple reports.
The patient was admitted to Mount Sinai Medical Center around 3 a.m., where doctors said they are not taking any chances and taking every precaution.
Around 3:30 p.m., Miami Beach Fire Rescue crews, some of whom were wearing hazmat suits, prepared an ambulance, reportedly to transport the child to Holtz Children's Hospital, near Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. He reportedly arrived there around 5 p.m.
Crews said, in the hour leading to the child's transport, authorities and officials were spotted gearing up in hazmat suits to prepare for the patient's arrival.
At Miami-Dade Health Department in Doral, health officials are expected to release more information about the child and his condition.
