First Test on Suspected Patient Negative


To finally rule out the deadly virus, the test will be repeated every day through Saturday, until which time the patient will remain in isolation.

The analysis was conducted at the Medical Faculty's Microbiology Institute, which reportedly has state-of-the art testing equipment.

News about the first suspected ebola case broke earlier today as UKC Ljubljana said a patient with fever had been admitted after returning from an ebola-affected part of Africa.

Appropriate proceedings have been launched based on a protocol that demands action when a person returns from an ebola area with fever.

At this point the patient is not displaying signs of the disease beyond having fever, said Franc Strle, the head of the infectious diseases department.
