Mexico says Ghanaian patient shows no signs of Ebola virus

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - A 52-year-old man from Ghana who has been hospitalized in Mexico does not shows signs of the deadly Ebola virus, the country’s health ministry said in a statement on Tuesday night.

The patient displayed fever-like symptoms and has been quarantined in a Ciudad del Carmen hospital in southern Campeche state in line with standard protocol, the statement said.

Laboratory tests that could reveal the presence of a range of infectious diseases are being performed and will be sent to Mexico’s national epidemiological institute INDRE for further analysis, the ministry added.
