CDC Confirms Kansas Patient Does Not Have Ebola

Associated Press - October 15, 2014 5:07 pm

A second lab has confirmed that a Kansas City, Kansas, man who came to University of Kansas Hospital this week with Ebola-like symptoms does not have the deadly disease.

A second lab has confirmed that a Kansas City, Kansas, man who came to University of Kansas Hospital this week with Ebola-like symptoms does not have the deadly disease.

The hospital announced Wednesday that the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta had confirmed negative results from a Nebraska lab, and that the patient had been moved to lower-level isolation.

Dr. Lee Norman said Monday the man was a medic on a commercial ship off Africa’s west coast and had treated patients for all kinds of illnesses, including typhoid fever.

The man became ill while on the ship and flew back to Kansas last week. He was placed in tight isolation at the Kansas City hospital because he had been working in an area where Ebola had broken out.
