New York Hospital Treating Patient Who May Have Ebola

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - Mount Sinai Hospital in New York says they are now treating a possible Ebola patient.

Officials there say the patient recently traveled to Africa and arrived at the hospital early Monday with a high fever and gastro-intestinal symptoms.

They also say they're taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of other patients.

In the meantime new numbers from the world health organization show the record-breaking Ebola outbreak in West Africa is getting worse.

As the Ebola outbreak worsens in West Africa, Liberia has ordered the remains of victims cremated to prevent further infection.

The World Health Organization says there are now 1,600 cases and 887 people have died.
