UTAH Primary Children’s patient does not have Ebola

 

(by Michael McFall, The Salt Lake Tribune) -- Primary Children’s Hospital has eliminated the chance that one of their patients has the Ebola virus.

Earlier this week, the Salt Lake City hospital admitted a patient who had traveled to a part of west Africa that’s not currently affected by the deadly virus. On Thursday, the Primary Children’s announced that there was a possible, though unlikely, chance that the patient was infected with Ebola.

The hospital sent a sample sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Thursday, which tested negative for the virus, according to a Primary Children’s news release.

The patient has been discharged, the release adds.
