Nigerian Man Infected With Ebola Virus Isolated In Spain
August 18, 2014 – Nigerian Man With Ebola Virus Disease Symptoms Isolated In Spain
A Nigerian man who recently returned to Spain from a month long vacation in Nigeria has showed symptoms similar to that of Ebola virus infection.
The unidentified man has been placed in a special isolation clinic for tests.
While the World Health Organisation declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa an international health emergency and said it was moving faster than could be controlled, aid groups have warned that efforts to stem the epidemic were “dangerously inadequate”.
Officials in Alicante, southern Spain, said the man checked into a hospital with a fever.
Doctors determined that he was suffering from Ebola-like symptoms, and he was referred to a special isolation clinic for tests.
