A 5-year-old boy who returned from Guinea last Saturday (Oct. 25) is being tested for Ebola at New York City’s Bellevue Hospital, ABC News reports.  The boy was taken to the hospital Sunday night due to his travel history and reports of him having a fever. When he arrived at Bellevue he was not exhibiting any symptoms, but this morning he had a fever, which led to workers to administering Ebola testing. The child is currently in isolation and test results will be available in the next 12 hours.

The first Ebola patient in New York, Dr. Craig Spencer, is also in isolation at Bellevue Hospital.
