San Francisco Chronicle

California public health officials declined Wednesday to disclose the identity of the Sacramento patient who is being tested for the Ebola virus after returning from one of the West African countries affected by the growing outbreak of the disease. They refused to reveal the patient’s gender, age, which West African country he or she had traveled to and how the exposure may have happened, citing federal health privacy laws.
