A possible case of the Ebola virus is being investigated by a hospital in Sweden, local media has reported.
A man who recently travelled to a "risk area" was being treated in an isolation unit at the Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, the reports said.
According to Sweden's Aftonbladet newspaper doctors are currently running tests on the man, who recently returned from west Africa where the disease has claimed almost 1,500 lives.
"The virus isn't airborne and can only be spread between people through direct contact with blood and other body fluids," the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet wrote, quoting a statement by the Stockholm County Council.
Neither the council nor the hospital could immediately be reached for comment.
