A detainee at an immigration centre in Scotland has been tested for the deadly Ebola virus, NHS Lanarkshire told STV.
The female detainee at Dungavel Detention Centre was taken to the infectious diseases unit at Monklands General Hospital yesterday for the tests, the report states.
She is believed to be in her 30s and from Sierra Leone, where hundreds of people have died since the Ebola outbreak.
An NHS Lanarkshire spokesman said it was a "precautionary measure" and that it was "highly unlikely" the patient would test positive for Ebola.
