CNN is reporting that at least six people have been tested for Ebola in New York City in addition to a patient who was isolated due to  fears he contracted the deadly virus on a trip to West Africa. 

CNN’s chief medical correspondent reports that details of the other cases were not divulged publicly. “There have been about a half a dozen patients who have had their blood tested because of concern, those particular patients their stories were not made public,” said  Dr. Sanjay Gupta. “I’m not sure if that’s because of heightened concern by the hospital or what that means exactly.”
