South Africa’s Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi has confirmed that a pregnant woman who was placed in isolation amid Ebola fears, has tested negative.
Motsoaledi has again offered assurances that authorities are closely monitoring for any signs of Ebola among travellers. The Minister was addressing a media conference in Johannesburg.
Motsoaledi has outlined the precautions taken for the pregnant young woman who was suffering a fever. He says the woman was placed in isolation.
Well over 1 000 deaths have been reported from Ebola in West Africa where most countries have declared Ebola emergencies.
Earlier on Thursday the World Health Organisation said every city with an international airport was at risk.
