A man who was placed in strict isolation and tested for Ebola at New York’s Mount Sinai Hospital this week has tested negative, according to the hospital.

In a statement Wednesday afternoon, Mount Sinai said that the Centers for Disease Control and Protection “determined that the patient kept in isolation since Monday” is not infected with the deadly disease.

The man, according to the statement, “is in stable condition, is improving, and remains in the care of our physicians and nurses.”

The male patient had come to the Manhattan hospital’s emergency room early Monday morning with high fever and gastrointestinal problems. He had recently returned from a West African country where Ebola has been reported.
