(DALLAS) — A patient at a Texas hospital has been isolated and is being evaluated to determine whether or not he or she has contracted the Ebola virus.
Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said the patient was placed into strict isolation because of the patient’s symptoms and recent travel history.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expects to have preliminary test results on the patient Tuesday, the hospital said.
The Ebola virus has killed at least 2,909 in West Africa and infected at least 3,000 more, according to the World Health Organization.
International and U.S. health officials have warned the outbreak could infect 1.4 million people in West Africa by January if more is not done to stop the disease.
