miA patient was tested for Ebola Sunday at a Miami-area hospital, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said. The patient did not meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention criteria for the disease, but the test was conducted to err on the side of caution, according to a news release from the governor’s office.  WSVN.com in Miami/Fort Lauderdale reports that the patient is a child visiting the United States from West Africa. The patient was admitted to Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach in the early morning and reportedly transferred to Holtz Children’s Hospital in Miami in the early evening, according to the station. The mayor of Miami Beach, Philip Levine, told the station it is likely that the child has the flu “but we want to be very proactive, very progressive,” WSVN.com reported. Scott said the Florida Department of Health on Sunday asked for 30 more Ebola testing kits from the CDC so all the state’s public hospitals have them. Additional protective equipment for workers also was requested. More
