A Kansas City TV station, KCTV-5 reported Saturday night someone was being quarantined at Rockhill Research Hospital (Research Medical Center), according to their sister station in Wichita, KWCH.
A source in Kansas City confirmed the story to the Gateway Pundit and added some details.
A Nigerian woman was taken to the hospital with a high fever and Ebola like symptoms. Her apartment building was quarantined, though that may have been lifted later.
The source added the Nigerian woman initially tested negative for Ebola and was released (or set to be released) but was called back to the hospital. The source said parts of the hospital may be quarantined but the hospital is not confirming anything.
The CDC is reportedly on the way, according to the source.
UPDATE: KCTV posted and update Sunday morning.
“The Kansas City Health Department said they are monitoring and keeping a close eye on a patient that may have contracted a contagious virus.
“Spokesman Jeff Hershberger said it is extremely unlikely that this person has Ebola because of their travel history and lack of symptoms. It is unknown at this time what the patient is suffering from or if anyone else is sick.
“This comes after a Kansas City apartment building was sealed off about 9:30 p.m. Saturday when a person who lived there became seriously ill with something that may be contagious, a source close to KCTV5 News says.
