Nigerian tourist visiting Singapore does not have Ebola
A Nigerian woman, administered to a hospital in Singapore with Ebola-like symptoms, has been cleared of the deadly virus which has resulted in the deaths of over 1 000 people in four West African countries so far.
According to an article by local website, straitstimes.com, the woman was admitted to the Gleneagles Hospital with fever, before being put in isolation and transferred to the Communicable Diseases Centre of Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH). Her reasons for being in the country are as yet unknown.
"We saw a patient with a history from Nigeria”, said TTSH Chief Executive, Philip Choo, adding that after being tested ‘no contact with any suspect or confirmed (Ebola) patients’ could be found. The woman, believed to be in her fifties, has since been discharged from the hospital.
