Ebola scare a false alarm, says hospital

THE Nigerian woman who was sent from Gleneagles Hospital to the Communicable Diseases Centre at Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) yesterday morning does not have Ebola as first feared.

Prof Philip Choo, TTSH’s chief executive officer, said that it was a false alarm and that she has since been discharged.

“We saw a patient with a history from Nigeria,” he said, but her detailed history revealed “no contact with any suspect or confirmed patients”. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
