At least six people within the continental United States have been tested for the dreaded Ebola virus, the deadly hemorrhagic disease tearing through West Africa. While all six people tested negative, the states in which these people were from remains a tightly guarded secret.
Said individual, who has recently traveled to West Africa where the current outbreak is taking place is said to be under "strict isolation."
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - It's not yet known whether a patient who walked into Mount Sinai Hospital in New York Monday with "high fever and gastrointestinal problems" was one of those six or in addition to the six.
The Centers for Disease Control were asked two questions. First, in which states were the six people who had been tested located? Second, had the tests come back and what were the results?

The CDC's Director of Public Affairs replied with a vague response. "The six previous tests were all negative and sporadic in time and place. Mount Sinai test still pending testing at CDC." he wrote. By implication, the pending test is the seventh in a row.
Results are expected shortly. Said individual, who has recently traveled to West Africa where the current outbreak is taking place is said to be under "strict isolation."
Health officials continue to downplay concerns about an Ebola outbreak in the U.S. Those patients suspected of carrying the disease have been isolated in New York, Atlanta and Ohio.
"There have been about a half a dozen patients who have had their blood tested because of concern, those particular patients their stories were not made public," CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta says. "I'm not sure if that's because of heightened concern by the hospital or what that means exactly."
Patient number seven is reportedly in stable condition. "The patient, who remains in isolation, was stable overnight and in good spirits," a hospital statement said.
"No other patients have presented with similar symptoms and travel history to West Africa. We will continue to work closely with federal, state and city health officials to address and monitor this case, keep the community informed and provide the best quality care to all of our patients."
The Mt. Sinai case has other hospital patients on edge.
In the meantime, two Americans, 33-year-old Dr. Kent Brantly and 58-yar-old nurse Nancy Writebol remain in medical isolation.
Officials said they both showed improvement after being treated with an experimental drug that had been tested only with mice.
