DENVER — A patient thought to possibly have contracted Ebola tested negative for the virus Sunday evening, according to officials with the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
This was the second test of the day that returned a negative result.
The patient was admitted to Denver Health Sunday morning and put in the bio containment unit out of an abundance of caution.
The hospital is one of only ten in the country designated by the CDC to handle something like this.
At Denver Health, emergency workers wore special suits to protect them from the highly infectious disease.
Doctors say the Denver man began exhibiting symptoms of Ebola Sunday morning, which the CDC says can range from fever to severe headaches to vomiting.
