Hospital: No signs of Ebola in Dallas-area officer

 DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas hospital treating a sheriff's deputy who went into the apartment where an Ebola victim was living says the deputy is showing no signs that he's also infected.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas said in a statement Thursday that Michael Monnig remains in good condition one day after he was taken by ambulance to the hospital.

The hospital says Monnig does not have a fever, vomiting or diarrhea. Results of further testing are expected later Thursday.

Monnig was one of the deputies who went inside the Dallas apartment where Thomas Eric Duncan was staying. Monnig did not have contact with Duncan, but did see some of Duncan's family members now in isolation. Duncan died Wednesday.

Officials say none of Duncan's relatives have shown any signs that they are infected.
