(Reuters) - A patient was being evaluated in isolation at a Colorado hospital for Ebola on Thursday after experiencing symptoms of the disease, health officials said.

The patient, who was not identified and was considered low-risk, had recently traveled to an Ebola-affected country and was transported on Wednesday evening to the Medical Center of the Rockies after falling ill, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said in a statement.
