Ebola ruled out in Swedish patient suspected of having virus, hospital says

(CNN)A man in Sweden who was being treated for suspected Ebola contamination at Uppsala University Hospital on Friday does not have the deadly virus.

“We have run several tests for the Ebola virus and other viruses and they have been negative,” said Mikael Köhler, the chief medical officer of the hospital. He added that the patient “has become much better and stable and not bleeding anymore.”
The patient, who is in isolation, was admitted to a hospital in Enköping — about 50 miles (80 kilometers) from Stockholm — before being transferred to Uppsala about 7 a.m. local time, according to the regional authority.
