MOUNT SINAI PATIENT TESTED FOR EBOLA VIRUS
Monday, August 04, 2014 UPPER EAST SIDE (WABC) -- Mount Sinai Hospital is performing tests on a patient who had recently traveled to a West African country where Ebola has been reported, the hospital says.
A male patient with high fever and gastrointestinal symptoms came to the hospital's emergency room on Monday morning.
The hospital says the patient has been placed in strict isolation and is undergoing medical screenings to determine the cause of his symptoms.
"All necessary steps are being taken to ensure the safety of all patients, visitors and staff. We will continue to work closely with federal, state and city health officials to address and monitor this case, keep the community informed and provide the best quality care to all of our patients," the hospital wrote in a statement.

“While the CDC says it is not screening passengers boarding planes at African airports - the job of local authorities there...”
Given that most African countries are less than competent in anything health-related, this does not reassure me in the least bit.
We absolutely need to quarantine ANYONE who comes into this country who is ill and/or has had their passport stamped by any of the countries involved (Sierra Leone, Liberia, etc).
Life/health BUMP! Thanks for posting.
Well, if he would have taken a stroll down Christopher St, imagine the body count due to the easy pickings Ebola would have
Kind of like the new FX TV show the “the Strain”
Nothing to worry about! Nothing to worry about! There’s no reason to think Ebola will spread in the US! There is nothing to worry about! Now go eat your peas!
See, all's good. Nothing to worry about. Move along.
