No Ebola in two patients tested in Sacramento

Two patients suspected of having Ebola tested negative for the disease Friday in Sacramento.

Kaiser Permanente officials said a person was admitted to their South Sacramento hospital Wednesday in order to be tested for the disease. After test results came back negative, Kaiser said the patient was in good condition and being discharged.

Officials at UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento said Thursday they were treating a patient with Ebola symptoms. Test results Friday came back negative for that patient as well.

No information was released about either patient, except that both had traveled recently to West African countries at the center of the deadly Ebola outbreak.

In the United States, there has been one death and three confirmed cases of Ebola. No one has tested positive for Ebola in California.
