Health officials briefed the news media late today on a report that an Oregon woman who recently returned after a trip to Liberia, West Africa, suddenly came down with a 102 degree temperature. Since she had been contacted earlier by medical officials to report to them if she developed a temperature, she notified the state immediately. She was quickly whisked away to a sealed hospital room designed to give the woman’s body time to reveal whether the fever is Ebola or just some flu or possibly even malaria.
