Mount Sinai hospital in Manhattan has confirmed that a patient who was being tested for the deadly Ebola virus has been cleared for the disease by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"We would like to report that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have determined that the patient kept in isolation since Monday, August 4, 2014 at The Mount Sinai Hospital has tested negative for Ebola Virus Disease (EVD)," the hospital said, in a statement. "The patient is in stable condition, is improving, and remains in the care of our physicians and nurses."
The news comes soon after the CDC announced that it has ramped up its worldwide Ebola prevention efforts by moving into "Level 1 activation." That is the agency's highest level of activation and is reserved for the largest-scale responses, according to a CDC statement.
"Our movement to Level 1 activation is appropriate given the significance of this outbreak, the extension to Nigeria, and the potential to affect many lives," the CDC said, in a Wednesday statement. "With the cases showing up in Nigeria and Lagos we may be in this for the long haul."
