A suspected case of Ebola has been reported at a hospital in Sweden.

Ebola - which causes fever, severe headaches and in some cases hemorrhaging - kills about half of those infected.

The individual is not confirmed to have Ebola, and other diagnoses are possible. While Burundi is now not a risk area for the disease, neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo has been grappling with an Ebola outbreak since last summer.

Mikael Köhler, Head Doctor at Region Uppsala told UNT: "The patient came into the hospital this morning". Dr. Ted Cieslak, who is an infectious disease specialist at the medical centers said in a statement on December 29, "the person may have been exposed to the virus but is not ill and is not contagious". It spreads through direct contact with body fluids, such as blood, sweat or saliva.
