A patient entered Baptist St. Anthony's (BSA) hospital exhibiting symptoms that have been explained as Ebola-like symptoms. The hospital is currently on lock-down.
The patient came in with what is described as flu-like symptoms. During triage and questioning the patient answered questions revealing that he came into contact with someone who had traveled to Africa. Upon receiving this information they put the ER into high risk protocol measures.
