As I wrote yesterday, about another `suspect’ case in Saudi Arabia - Most will likely turn out to have something less dire, like Dengue or malaria.  But the possibility of Ebola in travelers coming from West Africa cannot be ignored.

 

Tonight, not unexpectedly, we have confirmation that the `suspect case’ in isolation at Mount Sinai Hospital for the past two days in New York City has tested negative for the Ebola virus.  

 

Below is a screen shot of the announcement from the Mount Sinai Hospital Twitter account.
