(CNN) -- An American patient treated for Ebola in Nebraska then released is now in isolation in a hospital in Massachusetts. And an Ebola patient in Dallas has slipped into critical condition.
Dr. Richard Sacra, who had been previously treated for Ebola, went to an emergency room early Saturday in Boston with a cough and fever, said missionary organization Serving in Mission. He was afraid he might have pneumonia.
Because of his previous infection, he was transferred to the UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester, the center said in a statement.
Doctors there don't believe his symptoms point to a recurrence of Ebola, but instead a respiratory infection. But they are keeping Sacra in isolation, in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, until the CDC gives the all clear.
We're waiting for final test results from the CDC, which we expect to receive late Monday," said lead physician Dr. Robert Finberg.
Sacra had worked as a medical missionary in Liberia but not directly with Ebola patients. Nevertheless, he contracted the disease. He was treated in isolation at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha then released after testing negative for the virus.
last night there was someone else on a plane from liberia that was sick on the plane......went to hospital then they said his symptoms could be something else so they sent him home with meds and told him to monitor his symptoms. i say they should have him quarantined too to make sure he dont have it
It looks like stupidity let this person come back home... so far it looks like he's the only one. Lets all hope so.
they need to stop letting anyone into this country from nations where ebola is. someone could come from there and be infected and go to store and infect alot of ppl if they just cough near them. and that person wouldnt know at all til it was too late. That is some scary shit if you really think about it.
