Patient at Pennsylvania hospital doesn't have Ebola

A patient at a hospital in Philadelphia does not have Ebola, health officials have determined.

Penn Medicine had said the patient at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania was being tested for the potentially deadly illness even though officials didn't believe the patient had Ebola, the AP reported.

Officials said testing for Ebola was done "in an abundance of caution" because the patient met screening criteria for Ebola.

An Ebola outbreak was declared just over six months ago in the eastern part of Congo, which has had 10 outbreaks and the world's second-largest recorded.
