Two of four new patients suspected of being infected with Ebola in Spain have tested negative in a first round of tests, authorities have said.
The government’s Ebola monitoring committee said on its official Twitter account today that the two were a person who arrived on an Air France jet which was isolated at Madrid’s airport yesterday and a person who travelled in the same ambulance used to take infected Spanish nursing assistant Teresa Romero to hospital earlier this month.
Both had developed fevers.
They will be tested again within 72 hours.
Two others, a missionary who came down with a fever after returning from Liberia and a Red Cross health worker who recently worked with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, are also due to be tested.
