A 5-year-old boy who recently visited West Africa and developed a fever upon returning to New York has tested negative for Ebola, CNN is reporting.

The boy was being treated at New York’s Bellevue Hospital Center, where he has been tended with his mother by his side. 

His results come on the same day that nurse Kaci Hickox was released from quarantine in New Jersey.

Ms. Hickox treated Ebola patients in West Africa and had been sequestered by U.S. health officials after landing at Newark Liberty International Airport.

After initially being told she would be placed on mandatory 21-day hold, Ms. Hickox was allowed to return to her home in Maine Monday in the wake of a fierce battle of words with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie over her confinement.
