A PATIENT in Sweden has reportedly been struck down with Ebola according to local media reports.

The patient’s identity is still unknown, but is currently in isolation at a University Hospital in Uppsala. The patient’s test results are expected on Friday evening. Ebola is one of the world’s most dangerous diseases and killed over 11,000 people during an epidemic in Africa that started in 2014., while an outbreak is still active in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

In a statement, Swedish officials said: “The emergency room at the hospital is therefore currently closed.

“The patient is isolated and staff who have met the patient are taken care of.”

But officials working at Region Uppsala, the health body in the area, say it is ”quite possible” the man has contracted another disease other than Ebola.

Officials at Region Uppsala - the local health body - have admitted it is 'quite possible' the patient could have another disease.

Mikael Köhler, Head Doctor at Region Uppsala told UNT: “The patient came into the hospital this morning. They had then had blood in their vomit, which can be a symptom of Ebola.

“The patient came home from a trip to, among other places, Burundi, in central Africa, three weeks ago, but they have not as far as we are aware visited any areas where there is active Ebola contagion.”

A healthcare worker in th US was placed under quarantine in December after fears struck that he may have contracted te deadly Ebola virus after returning from from the DRC.

The medic, who was not originally showing any signs of Ebola, is expected to be in isolation at a hospital in Nebraska for another week.
