Joint Statement from NYC Health and Hospitals Corporation and NYC Department of Health
An individual who returned to the United States on Sunday from one of the West African nations facing the Ebola epidemic was taken to HHC’s Bellevue Hospital Center today. The individual did not have contact with Ebola patients while in West Africa, and was asymptomatic upon return. Due to the individual’s travel history and current symptoms, the patient has been isolated. The patient is currently being evaluated by physicians at Bellevue. Further details will be provided if a decision is made to test for Ebola.
