Pair taken to NY hospital with Ebola-like symptoms do not have virus

NEW YORK (PIX11) - Two more patients with Ebola-like symptoms were taken to Bellevue Hospital, hospital officials said Monday.

A spokesman told PIX11 Monday, however, that there are no cases of Ebola at the hospital.  Bellevue alone has handled at least 29 suspected cases of Ebola in the last two months. None of the patients actually had the deadly virus.

The hospital issued the following statement regarding the latest scare:

There are no patients at Bellevue with Ebola. Two patients there this morning were evaluated and it was quickly determined they did not have the virus. Because of the heightened alert, hospitals will be using enhanced scrutiny and an abundance of caution when reviewing questionable cases, and are meticulously following all public health and CDC protocols.

Mayor Bill de Blasio reaffirmed that statement Monday, adding that Bellevue is in a "high state of readiness," adding, "we are ready for anything."

If anyone entering the city is diagnosed with Ebola, Bellevue would likely be the next stop as the city's premiere public hospital.

The latest scare comes one day after a Texas nurse who treated the first U.S. Ebola patient was also diagnosed with the disease.  Texas Health Presbyterian officials confirmed that the nurse, 26-year-old Nina Pham, was wearing protective gear when she was infected.

The CDC initially blamed a "possible breach in safety protocol."  On Monday, CDC Director Tom Frieden apologized after some felt it sounded like he was blaming a health worker who was risking her own life to save a patient's.  "I feel awful that a health care worker became infected in the care of an Ebola patient.  She was there trying to help the first patient survive."

    THESE VIRUSES WERE CREATED TO BE GERM WARFARE TO COMMIT GENOCIDE ON CERTAIN ETHNIC GROUPS OF PEOPLE. THE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ARE WITHHOLDING THE ZMAPP ANTIBODIES TO CURE THE VIRUS. IF YOU WAS BITTEN BY A COBRA SNAKE, YOU WOULD NEED THE ANTI VENOM OR YOU WOULD DIE. THE EBOLA IS JUST LIKE A POISONOUS SNAKE BITE, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THE THE ASHKENAZI FAKE JEWS AND THE UNITED STATES SCIENTISTS DEVELOPED THE VIRUS AND ARE USING THE AFRICAN PEOPLE AS HUMAN GUINEA PIGS. SUCH A DIABOLICAL SCHEMES TO COMMIT GENOCIDE ON BLACKS. HARD TO BELIEVE THAT ANYONE WOULD PLAN TO COMMIT GENOCIDE ON ANY ETHNIC GROUP OF PEOPLE, BUT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA DID JUST THAT VERY ACT ON THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLES. THE EUROPEAN DESCENDANTS OF KHARZARS MURDERED MILLIONS OF NATIVES, WHEN THE CAUCASIANS TERRORISTS WERE FINISHED WITH MURDERING THE NATIVES, THERE WERE LESS THAN 500,000 NATIVES LEFT A LIVE. READ THE BOOK THE TRAIL OF TEARS. THE NATIVES FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL. THE UNITED STATES USED GERM WARFARE CALLED SMALLPOX INTO BLANKETS. NO ONE CAN TELL ME THAT THESE ATROCITIES WERE NOT COMMITTED BY THE EUROPEAN DESCENDANTS OF KHARZARS FROM THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN. THEY ARE DEVILS.

    The True Origin of Aids and Ebola

    DON’T BELIEVE THESE LIES. THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN FEAR TACTICS TO CREATE PANIC IN THE PUBLIC. I F A BLACK WOMAN IN THE HEART OF THE AFFECTED AREA OF AFRICA TOOK CARE OF HER FAMILY USING ANTIBIOTICS WHILE PROTECTING HERSELF WITH NOTHING MORE THAN TRASH BAGS, GLOVES, SOAP AND WATER AND SHE DIDN’T CONTACT THE EBOLA VIRUS. SOMETIME IS WRONG WITH THE UNITED STATES HEALTH SYSTEM. I BELIEVE I KNOW WHAT IS WRONG, THE WHITE MAN IS A BIG LIAR. THE REAL EPIDEMIC IS THE EUROPEAN DESCENDANTS OF KHARZARS,THE WHITE MAN INJECTING THE EBOLA VIRUS INTO THE AFRICAN PEOPLE, JUST AS THE EUROPEAN DESCENDANTS OF KHARZARS,THE WHITE MAN INJECTED THE BLACKS WITH THE SYPHILIS VIRUS AND CALLED IT THE TUSKEGEE INSTITUTE EXPERIMENT. WHAT A DIABOLICAL SCHEME THE EUROPEAN DESCENDANTS OF KHARZARS,THE SO CALLED WHITE MAN COMMITTED ON BLACKS. RESEARCH ALL OF THE HORRIBLE ATROCITIES THAT THE EUROPEAN DESCENDANTS OF KHARZARS, THE WHITE MAN HAS COMMITTED ON EVERY NATION HE HAS PLACED HIS FOOT.
