HELSINKI – Swedish health officials say a social ebula tax reported by a hospital has led to false fear in tests carried out on the designated patient, showing no signs of the deadly virus.
Medical authorities saw Friday that the young patient was admitted to a non-heretic emergency ward in a hospital in Enkoping, north-west of Stockholm, with symptoms including blood in his and his stalls.
Officials said the condition of the man who spent several weeks in Burundi improved over the course of the day. Tests also showed that the person is not suffering from yellow fever, dengue, Marburger virus or Rift Valley fever.
All major Ebola outbreaks have been in Africa, although isolated cases have been reported outside the continent.
