Swedish hospital isolates patient amid Ebola suspicion

An ebola case has been found in Europe

The patient was admitted to a hospital in Enkoping before being transferred to nearby Uppsala University Hospital, where the emergency clinic has been closed.

The specialist test to determine whether the Ebola virus is present is expected to be completed by Friday evening.

The patient's identity is still unknown, but is now in isolation at a University Hospital in Uppsala.

He visited "mostly urban areas in Burundi, where there isn't thought to be any active Ebola as far as we know", Köhler said. While Burundi is now not a risk area for the disease, neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo has been grappling with an Ebola outbreak since last summer.

Security was ramped up for the inauguration, with some 3,000 police patrolling the event. Netanyahu said Bolsonaro assured him Brazil's embassy will be moved to Jerusalem.

"The patient came in Friday morning and reportedly was vomiting blood which may be a symptom of Ebola infection", hospital spokesman Mikael Kohler told local newspaper Upsala Nya Tidning.

The Ebola epidemic in West Africa ended two years ago after claiming the lives of as many as 11,300 people across Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea. Dr. Ted Cieslak, who is an infectious disease specialist at the medical centers said in a statement on December 29, "the person may have been exposed to the virus but is not ill and is not contagious".

Ebola is spread via contact with the bodily fluids of those infected.
