A woman who was being monitored for the Ebola virus in Multnomah County after traveling to West Africa was hospitalized Friday with a “sustained fever.” County health officials say she had developed a fever that rose to 102 degrees.

A fever can be a symptom of Ebola, but health officials also pointed out that other diseases cause fevers – like malaria.

The woman was hospitalized at Providence Milwaukie hospital. OPB’s Kristian Foden-Vencil was at the press conference in Portland where health officials talked about the case. He talked to Spencer Raymond at OPB.

Kristian: Hello

Spencer: Do we know whether this patient has Ebola?

Kristian: We don’t know at this point. But what we do know is that at some point this woman was in either Liberia, Sierra Leone or Guinea.
