The 5-year-old rushed to Bellevue with a fever last night does not have Ebola. “Out of an abundance of caution, further negative Ebola tests are required on subsequent days to ensure that the patient is cleared,” the NYC Department of Health said in a statement. “The patient will also be tested for common respiratory viruses. The patient will remain in isolation until all tests have returned.” The child had recently returned from Guinea, according to reports. Five members of his family have been in quarantine at their apartment all day, just in case, but at least his mom is by his side.
