Patient At London Hospital Tests Negative For Ebola

A woman who was admitted to a hospital in south London with a fever has tested negative for Ebola.

The patient arrived at St George's Hospital in Tooting last night, where she was being closely monitored.

A spokesperson from St George's Healthcare NHS Trust said: "An unwell patient who had recently travelled to West Africa was admitted to St George's Hospital yesterday.

"In line with national guidance the patient was moved to our clinical infections unit and underwent a series of tests, as a precaution one of which was for Ebola.

"The outcome of the Ebola test result is negative.

"We can confirm that the patient will remain at St George's Hospital.

"All appropriate actions have been taken by our staff to protect the public and the patient."

William Pooley became the first confirmed Briton to contract Ebola and was flown back to the UK in August, where he was treated at the Royal Free Hospital in London.

The 29-year-old has returned to Sierra Leone where he caught the infection to begin his second spell treating people infected by the deadly virus.
