5-Year-Old Has 'Ebola Symptoms,' Family Quarantined

| by Charles Roberts

A boy who returned from Guinea just two nights ago has reportedly been taken to Bellevue Hospital in New York with what are being called “Ebola symptoms.”

According to the New York Post, the 5-year-old boy in question began vomiting and had a 103-degree fever when he was transported from his home in the Bronx to a hospital.

EMS workers wore hazmat suits the entire time and reportedly took all of the necessary precautions.

A neighbor told the New York Post that the boy looked “weak” and was “really, really out of it.”

Five members of the boy’s family are reportedly being quarantined inside their apartment. There has been no confirmation thus far if all five were with him while he was in West Africa.
