A patient is being tested for a possible case of the Ebola virus at a hospital in Malmo in southern Sweden.

They arrived with a high temperature and fever, and had just returned from an area with confirmed Ebola cases, the hospital said.

The patient’s symptoms and travel history prompted doctors to immediately suspect Ebola, according to Swedish newspaper Aftenbladet.

‘There are confirmed cases of Ebola in the area where the person has been staying,’ Maria Josephson, director of operations at the infection clinic, said.


Maria Josephsson, head of Skane’s infectious diseases department, said tests were being carried out because of where the patient had been staying.

On Tuesday Ms Josephsson told the BBC: “The patient is kept in isolation. We don´t know the exact time for the test results.”

Standard procedures were being followed and Ebola could not be ruled out until there was a negative result, she said.

Patienten inkom i går, och misstankar fattades direkt.

Patienten inkom igår till infektionskliniken i Malmö. Personen hade feber, Region Skåne vill inte utveckla symptomen närmare än så.

Man fattade direkt misstankar om ebola.

Vad är det som indikerar att det kan vara ebola?

– Det är patientens symptom och vart patienten har rest. Det finns bekräftade fall av ebola i området där personen har vistats, säger Maria Josephson, verksamhetschef på infektionskliniken på Skåne universitetssjukhus.

Man väntar nu på provsvaren, som väntas under dagen. Personen har isolerats från övriga patienter.
