DALLAS (Christian Examiner) -- A statement released at noon today offered calming reassurance about the second possible Ebola patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Spokesman Wendell Watson identified the patient as Michael West Monnig and described his condition as "Good with no fever, no vomiting, no diarrhea reported."

He further wrote that Monnig's condition is not consistent with expectations regarding early stage Ebola infection.

So far lab testing has produced normal results, but he said another round of test results are expected later today.
