The boy is currently at the Bellevue Hospital in New York, and the result of the analysis is expected in the next 12 hours. The child was brought to the hospital overnight, with fever, and was placed in isolation because he recently returned from Guinea.

So far there have been four cases of Ebola in the United States, the most recent one being that of a medic diagnosed with the disease last Thursday.
