Suspected Ebola patient isolated at Swedish hospital

Test results were expected to be published on Friday evening. "This is still only a suspicion and other diseases are a clear possibility", the regional authority's statement said.

Health care workers who are unprotected are susceptible to infection because of how close they work with patients during treatment.

It did not say where the patient had travelled, but Sweden's TT news agency said the patient had returned from a trip to Burundi three weeks ago and had not visited any region with the Ebola virus.
