ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A New Mexico health official told KRQE News 13 the patient being tested for Ebola at UNM Hospital does not have all the symptoms doctors would expect someone with the virus to have.

The 30-year-old Bernalillo County woman returned from teaching in Sierra Leone recently and checked herself into the hospital with flu-like symptoms.

KRQE News 13 was told she does not have the high fever often associated with the virus.

Her blood work has been sent to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta for testing.

Results are expected later this week.
