Tests Underway On Possible Ebola Case In NYC

(New York, NY) -- It could take 24 to 48 hours to determine whether a patient at New York City's Mount Sinai Hospital is suffering from the Ebola virus. Officials at the hospital say he came to the emergency room this morning complaining of a fever and had recently traveled to Africa. Mount Sinai Chief Medical Officer Jeremy Boal said odds are, this isn't Ebola, and the patient may be suffering from something else that would cause a fever.
