Public Health Wales have confirmed that a patient being tested for Ebola in Cardiff has come back as negative for the virus
In a statement the organisation stated there was no reason to believe there was any wider risk to public health.
“Public Health Wales can confirm that an individual tested for Ebola on Tuesday 10 March at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff does not have the disease. There is no reason to believe that there is any wider public health risk. We would once again like to reassure the public that all appropriate precautions have been taken to protect the patient, NHS staff and the wider community. We are unable to provide further comment on individual patients and therefore will not be issuing any further press statements on this case. It is important to remember that to date, only one case of Ebola has been identified in the UK and there has been none in Wales. The infection can be transmitted only through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person. The risk to the public from Ebola remains low.”
