Ebola: Man In Wales Tests Negative
A man from Wales – who was thought to have caught Ebola – has been given the all-clear and tested negative for the disease.
He was admitted to Glangwili Hospital in Carmarthen over the weekend, after suffering similar symptoms to the virus.
His age is unknown, but it’s understood he’d recently come back from a trip to Sierra Leone in West Africa – where more than 1,500 people have died.
There were reports that operations had been cancelled over the weekend as a result, but Hywel Dda Health Board says current patients should carry on using the hospital services as normal.
The board’s Director of Public Health Teresa Owen said:
“Like every area of the UK, we have well established arrangements to manage cases of infectious disease and we would like to thank all staff for their ongoing diligence. These arrangements have ensured there has been no impact on other health board services as a result of this situation”.
Public Health Wales says any risk to the UK is still low:
““It is important to remember that to date, no cases of Ebola have been identified in the UK and the infection can be transmitted only through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person.
