After Yale New Haven Hospital announced Thursday that it was treating a patient with “Ebola like symptoms,” Gov. Dannel Malloy said the state would take additional steps to prepare for the virus.
The diagnosis of the patient, who was admitted Wednesday night, is unknown at this time and confirmation of Ebola has not been made. The hospital gave a briefing on Thursday saying only that the patient had Ebola like symptoms and was being monitored. It stressed that it was “well equipped and prepared” to care for the patient in a way that would not impact others in the hospital and that every service remained open there.
