A man suffering from Ebola-like symptoms was rushed from an Upper West Side apartment building to Bellevue Hospital on Tuesday — but officials determined that he did not have the disease, authorities said.
The patient recently returned from Liberia and started suffering symptoms such as high fever Saturday night, sources said.
Hazmat, police officers, EMS and fire officials helped transport the man from the building at 201 W. 70th St. near Amsterdam Avenue just before noon, FDNY said.
The patient was given a blood test at Bellevue and it showed negative for Ebola.
He was given an alternative diagnosis and is currently in critical condition.
