Public Health Canada: ‘There are no confirmed cases of Ebola in Canada’

In a follow-up to a story yesterday  where a man hospitalized in a Saskatoon hospital for a suspected viral hemorrhagic fever, Canadian health officials say this has been “ruled out”, according to several tweets from the Public Health Agency of Canada about one hour ago.

The patient has tested negative for several causes of viral hemorrhagic fever to include Ebola, Lassa, Marburg and Crimean Congo, the health agency notes.

More testing is being performed to pinpoint the cause of the patient’s illness.

PHAC officials say that risk to Canadians is very low.

Yesterday, health officials reported a man with a recent travel history to western Africa, including Liberia was being examined for a suspected cases of viral hemorrhagic fever based on travel and symptoms.
