A patient at Hackensack University Medical Center who was evaluated Thursday night for possible infection with the coronavirus that has caused worldwide concern of a possible epidemic does not have the disease, the hospital said.

“After an evaluation of the patient and consulting with the State Department of Health, experts have determined the patient does not have the Wuhan coronavirus," Nancy Radwin, a hospital spokeswoman, said in a statement issued at 10:55 p.m.

The patient, a 25-year-old woman, was transported to the hospital on Thursday evening by the Edgewater Emergency Medical Services, according to EMS sources. The hospital said it would provide no further information about her condition, to protect her privacy.
