A patient with Ebola-like symptoms is being treated at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., a hospital spokesperson confirmed late Friday morning.
The patient had traveled to Nigeria recently.

Meanwhile, just after the Obama Administration assured us that we shouldn't worry about Ebola because there are "screening" procedures in place at the border, director of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Tom Frieden is now telling us that we can't close our border because it "won't work."
“Even if we tried to close the border, it wouldn’t work,” [Frieden] added. “People have a right to return. People transiting through could come in. And it would backfire, because by isolating these countries, it’ll make it harder to help them, it will spread more there and we’d be more likely to be exposed here.”
