Definitive Tests Confirm: No Ebola At KU
Definitive testing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed that a University of Kansas Hospital patient suspected of contracting Ebola does not have the virus.
The Kansas City, Kan., man had worked as a medic on a ship off the west coast of Africa until returning home a week ago. He was admitted to the hospital Monday morning showing concerning symptoms.
The patient has been moved to a lower level of isolation, and doctors say he’s improving.
They suspect he contracted a tropical disease.
