Ebola in Brooklyn?: A 14-year-old boy who had symptoms that could be Ebola was admitted to a Brooklyn hospital yesterday, shortly after returning from a trip to Sudan
A Brooklyn teenager was rushed to the hospital yesterday after showing symptoms consistent with Ebola.
The 14-year-old boy had a fever and was feeling fluish according to officials who spoke to the Daily News.
He was brought to Brookdale Hospital where tests are being run to see if he has the disease.
This news comes a day after the first man to die of Eboal in the United States, Thomas Eric Duncan, had his body cremated.
He is currently in isolation.
The boy was apparently in Sudan for two weeks and hospitalized there as well, but lied to officials about being sick so he could fly home.
Now, NYPD is working with officials to see if any of his family members should also be quarantined.
It’s still not clear exactly when the boy flew back into the country and just how many people he has been in contact with since returning.
New York City has been preparing for these situations it was recently revealed, with actors going into hospitals and feigning Ebola-like symptoms to see how staff handled the scenario.

This news comes a day after the first man to die of Ebola in the United States, Thomas Eric Duncan, had his body cremated.
There have also been numerous false alarms around the country of recent, often with individuals travelling on planes.
well did he have it? and how much can you really hide vomiting? and the other horrible symptoms that comes with ebola?
stop going to Africa, until they find a cure for the damn desease, what is wrong with black people. Damn Africans need to stay their ass in Africa, if they know they have the desease and stop trying to bring it back here.
Hopefully it's true that he doesn't have the virus but I agree With McKinley Clemonts. This virus is coming to America and soon!
Good news, the young man from Brooklyn doesn't have Ebola. Wow, thank God he has been cleared. Take care of yourselves Sister and Brothers, because it is here, just a matter of time, it's going to hit! God Bless each and everyone of you!!!
@TIG, this is something that many people see coming...just a few years ago they said on the news, the over use of antibiotics could bring about old time diseases like the black death, if we don't do something soon.
Now speaking of scriptures where God has the final word, when you read carefully, it clearly states how many of the worlds population will be wiped out from war, famine and disease...in fact, if God doesn't intervene no one will be left alive. While we are on the topic of wiping out races...does anyone know what happened to the native American Indians? just asking...
