Ebola Scare Man Dies In Calabar.



Ten people have been quarantined after
coming into contact with a patient with Ebola-like
symptoms in the southern Nigerian city of
Calabar, officials said on Thursday, a year after
the country was declared free of the deadly
disease.
A patient came to the University of Calabar
Teaching Hospital on Wednesday with symptoms
consistent with the viral hemorrhagic fever, staff
there said.
Local media reported the patient had since died,
though there was no official confirmation.

"We have sent blood samples for testing and
quarantined identified contacts," the hospital's
chief medical director, Queeneth Kalu, said.
Nigeria's National Emergency Management
Agency said 10 people were in quarantine.
Any confirmed case would cause major concern
across the region, where experts had hoped they
were finally emerging from the worst epidemic of
the disease on record.
The three West African countries at the heart of
the epidemic - Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone -
had just recorded their first week with no new
cases since the outbreak was declared in March
2014, the World Health Organization (WHO) said
on Wednesday.
The Ebola virus arrived in Nigeria in July last year
when travelling Liberian businessman Patrick
Sawyer collapsed in Lagos airport. But the
country was declare
 Ebola free in October last year.
