College student under Ebola watch in East Coast hospital

An East Coast newspaper has reported Thursday that a patient was admitted to a Connecticut hospital and placed in isolation awaiting the results of a test for Ebola.

The patient, a student at Yale University, was hospitalized at Yale-New Haven Hospital on Wednesday night, running a fever. The unidentified student had been in Liberia for a month, studying the outbreak, the paper reported.

Another student also made that trip and is being monitored.

The hospital posted a statement on Facebook:

We are working in cooperation with City, State and Federal health officials. There is no further information available at this time.
