On Monday morning, Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine said that a test performed on the boy by a Florida Department of Health lab came back negative for Ebola. He added that another sample is being sent to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta for confirmation.
Though it was a huge scare from Miami Beach to Miami, officials called it a good dry run. "Thank God it was negative," said Levine during a news conference on Monday. "Of course, as you know, that the greater verification at the CDC in the next two or three days."Sunday at the Miami-Dade Health Department in Doral, Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine was briefed by health officials. He told 7News it was highly unlikely the child has Ebola. "We have a young person on vacation with his family who didn't feel good in the middle of the night, was admitted to Mount Sinai," he said. "It's highly unlikely that there's anything more here than a flu, but we want to be very proactive, very progressive."
