Second nurse who treated missionaries admitted with suspected Ebola
08 October 2014 @ 09:03

ANOTHER nurse who treated the two missionary doctors repatriated from Liberia and Sierra Leone has been admitted to Madrid's Carlos III hospital with suspected Ebola.

She was found to be suffering from a fever and is undergoing tests to find out whether she has caught the haemorrhagic virus from the two patients who were air-lifted home in August and September.

Along with a Spanish engineer who has just returned from Nigeria, and a third female nurse who has so far tested negative, the latest patient is the fifth person being held in isolation – although only one case has been confirmed.
