Ebola: Spanish nurse tests negative to virus

Spanish nurse – Teresa Romero – who became the first person to contract the Ebola virus outside West Africa has tested negative for the virus, the Spanish government said yesterday (October 19).

The 44-year-old, according to a BBC report, is no longer infected – although a second test is required before she can be declared free of Ebola, the result suggests.

Tests on Romero, hospitalized earlier this month with a high fever and treated in an isolation unit in a specially-adapted hospital in central Madrid, gave a negative result for the virus, it said in a statement.
