Tori Spelling hospitalised with symptoms of Ebola

 

Los Angeles: Actress Tori Spelling has been reportedly put in quarantine after being rushed to a hospital for Ebola-like symptoms.

The 41-year-old 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star was "running a fever, coughing uncontrollably, and having trouble breathing", reported TMZ online.

Doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital fear Spelling may have contracted Enterovirus D68. "Tori was not only admitted to the hospital, she was put under quarantine and neither Dean McDermott nor the children are allowed anywhere near her for fear she may have contracted the contagious non-polio Enterovirus," a source said.

"She's had a cough and low grade fever for more than a week now, but refused to see a doctor. She's been filming her show, and she and Dean worked hard on a birthday bash last weekend for their daughter Hattie, so Tori wasn't about to call off the party because she didn't feel well," the source added.

The source said doctors "are currently running tests. And they hope to have a diagnosis as soon as possible. But in the meantime, they have Spelling quarantined and are not letting anyone see her, especially her four children, who would be highly susceptible to the virus."

Because of her illness, the actress had to call off a promotional appearance for the season two of 'True Tori'.
