Isolated Portland Patient Does NOT Have Ebola Virus

The patient held for observation at Maine Medical Center in Portland has tested negative for the Ebola virus, according to a Tuesday news release.

Maine Medical Center officials announced Monday that they were monitoring the patient at the request of the Maine Centers for Disease Control.

On Tuesday, however, officials announced the patient was discharged after multiple tests confirmed the patient did not have the Ebola virus.

“While the experience of caring for this patient understandably caused concern within Maine Medical Center and the surrounding community, we can reflect on this case as a terrific emergency preparedness learning opportunity for our staff,” read the release from the hospital. “Based on our treatment and coordination with state and federal officials, we are confident in our ability to effectively care for patients with Ebola and other infectious diseases while maintaining their privacy and the health and safety of all our patients and staff.”
