New York Post: Woman Being Tested For Ebola At New Jersey Hospital

Woman being tested for Ebola at NJ hospital

A new case of Ebola may have just touched down in New Jersey.

A woman traveling from Sierra Leone ​on a connecting flight from Brussels ​is currently being tested at a New Jersey hospital to see if she has the​ potentially deadly virus.

Officials said the passenger “was vomiting and had a high fever,” according to a law enforcement source.

Medical specialists immediately boarded the plane once it landed at 2 p.m. Monday and “placed her in a full ‘bio-suit’” before transporting her to Hackensack University Medical Center.

One passenger aboard the flight tweeted photos of the hazmat crew boarding the plane. All 248 passengers and 14 crew members later had to fill out health forms before disembarking the plane.
