Nigerian tests negative for Ebola in HK
(08-11 10:22)

The Centre for Health Protection says a man from Nigeria, suspected of having the deadly Ebola virus, has tested negative at Princess Margaret Hospital.
It was the first suspected case of Ebola, which is spread through blood and body fluid, in Hong Kong following an outbreak in west Africa which has killed nearly a thousand people.

On Saturday the patient, who had been staying at a guest house in Chungking Mansions in Tsim Sha Tsui, went down with diarrhoea and vomiting but no fever.

He attended the Accident and Emergency Department of Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Sunday and was transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital for treatment under isolation.

Initial investigations by the CHP revealed that the patient had travelled from Lagos in Nigeria to Hong Kong on August 7, transiting in Dubai. --RTHK
