A patient was quarantined during an Ebola scare today at a hospital in Weston-Super-Mare.
The man, who had travelled from Lebanon, walked into the Accident and Emergency department at Weston General Hospital this morning
Nurses became concerned that the symptoms he was displaying were related to the disease and he was isolated on the ward. Tests carried out on the patient later confirmed he was not infected.
A hospital spokeswoman said: "A patient came in from abroad and because of some of the symptoms they were displaying, the accident and emergency department were naturally very cautious. They followed all the correct procedures and the proper triaging. The patient was found not to have Ebola.
"After around an hour it was back to business as normal once the department had established there was no cause for concern."
