Washington DC Hospital Admits Patient With Ebola Symptoms



Howard University Hospital in Washington has admitted a patient with symptoms "that could be associated with Ebola, in an abundance of caution" hospital spokeswoman Kerry-Ann Hamilton in a statement said on Friday.

"Our medical team continues to evaluate and monitor progress in close collaboration with the CDC and the Department of Health."

The patient, who had recently traveled to Nigeria, is in stable condition and is being treated in isolation, a hospital spokeswoman said, adding that she could not provide additional details about the case because of patient privacy.

This comes four days after the first Ebola patient to be diagnosed in the United States was put in isolation at a hospital in Texas, CNN reports.
