This undated file image made available by the CDC shows the Ebola Virus.

Public health officials in Montreal are denying reports of a case of Ebola in the city.

A number of media outlets say a patient who recently returned from Africa was placed in isolation at an unidentified Montreal hospital and quote agency officials who say the patient doesn't meet the criteria for exposure to Ebola.

As a precaution, samples were sent to the lab for analysis. The results are expected in the coming days.
