He or she is from Boston and traveled in a country where the virus is being transmitted. The symptoms were mild, the patient did not have to be hospitalized, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Dr. Donald Thea, professor of global health and director of the Center for Global Health & Development at Boston University, joined WBUR’s Morning Edition to discuss the virus and this case in Boston.
