Ebola update: Yale student to remain in isolation

While preliminary test results indicate the Yale graduate student hospitalized for Ebola-like symptoms after returning from West Africa does not have Ebola, the student will remain in an isolation unit for now.

The tests were conducted by the Massachusetts State Public Health Laboratory. The student is hospitalized at Yale-New Haven Hospital.

“Certainly this is encouraging news,” Gov. Dannel P. Malloy said of the negative results. “While the initial test results are negative, Dr. [Jewel] Mullen has made the determination that it is in the best interest for residents in New Haven and the surrounding area that the patient remain isolated as we await official test results from the [the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention].”

Ms. Mullen is commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Public Health.
