The patient being evaluated at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston for possible Ebola infection is in good condition and remains in isolation, the hospital said Monday.
The man was transported Sunday to Beth Israel after walking into an office of Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates in Braintree, Mass. Hospital officials later determined that he did not meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria for Ebola risk and said the likelihood that he has the virus is “extremely low.”
“We want to emphasize, there is no risk to other patients, visitors or staff,” the hospital said in a statement. “BIDMC remains open for clinical operations.”
