HONG KONG Aug 10 A patient being treated in a
Hong Kong hospital in the city's first suspected Ebola case has
tested negative for the virus, Hong Kong's health department
said on Sunday.
The 32-year-old man had travelled to Hong Kong from Nigeria,
where a state of emergency has been declared over the Ebola
outbreak in West Africa.
The patient was put in isolation after going to a hospital
earlier on Sunday as he developed diarrhoea and vomiting but no
fever. He is currently in a stable condition, the health
department said in a statement.
Hong Kong went on full alert for Ebola late in July.
