TX hospital isolates patient who might have Ebola
DALLAS, Texas - Doctors could know as early as Tuesday if a patient that has been placed in isolation has the Ebola virus.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement Monday night that the patient's symptoms and travel history suggest the patient may have Ebola, the virus that has killed more than 3,000 people across West Africa.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention could process and send the hospital preliminary test results overnight.
The Associated Press reported late Monday, Presbyterian Hospital was taking measures to keep doctors, staff and patients safe.
