Francisco, who declined to give his surname to the Associated Press, said residents in Alcorcon, Madrid, were worried after Teresa Romero Ramos became the first person to have contracted the disease outside of Africa.

We are all worried, not just me, everyone. This is like a snowball, you just don't know where it's going to stop.

If every person who has had contact with this person has contact with another 30, 40 persons, if this person meets another five, this could snowball.
