A 25-year-old man from Theni, who arrived in Chennai by flight from Guinea, has been transferred to the isolation ward of the hospital.

In a suspected case of the deadly Ebola virus, health officials on Saturday night detained and placed under observation a 25-year-old man who arrived from the Republic of Guinea at the Chennai Airport. He has been kept in the isolation ward of the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital, where his health is being closely monitored by a team of doctors and staff who have taken the precautionary measures recommended.

The Union Health Ministry has opened a 24-hour "Emergency Operation Centre" from August 9, 2014. The helpline numbers are: 011-23061469, 23063205, 23061302.

More details are awaited.

Symptoms

The virus spreads through blood, sweat, semen, vomit, urine and saliva. The symptoms of the disease include fever, headache, fatigue, vomiting and diarrhoea, stomach ache, joint pain and bleeding.

To confirm the disease, the blood samples will be sent to the National Institute of Virology in Pune.


There are like 45000 Indians working in Africa , this is worrying only God knows how many people are around who does not know they are infected..

Oh dear, if it gets loose in India, given their level of sanitation, it's all over.

Depends on the location , Most Urban area's have a pretty decent access to quality hospitals . and are a notch above most African countries . This will be a problem if it goes into rural area's

Lucky for us all Ebola doesn't sweep it creeps. Just to put it into perspective there have been less than 2000 cases in five months while the Spanish flu of 1918-1919 was killing on average a million people every few weeks. 25million in 25 weeks were some estimates.

Have you never noticed the number of Indian doctors in US hospitals? They have pretty good schools there. a reply to: Orphanim

So far all of the suspected cases outside of Africa have turned out to be negative. Let's hope that trend continues. It seems that nations are responding pretty quickly to anyone who gets sick and is known to have been in the hot zone recently. This level of action will in all likelihood keep any cases that do pop up to a minimum. The health community does in fact know how to contain the disease and I fully expect them to regain control is west Africa in the coming weeks.

Isn't it interesting how we are suddenly getting all these suspected cases coming off of airlines? This plague has been burning through the same countries in Africa since late February, and it's only now that we apparently have all these suspected cases pouring off of airplanes? I'm not saying it isn't a concern, but either it's been a concern all along meaning there should always have been a trickle of suspected cases coming in sine it hit the big cities or for some reason we are just now deciding to inject this hysteria into the mix.

I think as the virus spread the chances of it affecting a person from outside the region increased. That's all. More people sick in the area more likely to spread it to foreigners.a reply to: ketsuko
