WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A patient admitted to a Connecticut hospital late on Tuesday was being monitored for possible Ebola infection after recently traveling from Liberia, a Fox News affiliate reported.

"An Ebola infection could not be ruled out because of the symptoms and the patient('s) recent arrival from Liberia on April 30," Fox affiliate WTIC said on its website, adding the patient was admitted to the University of Connecticut Health Center's John Dempsey Hospital.
