A patient in Belfast being tested for the deadly Ebola virus may have come into contact with airline passengers in London after changing flights, it has emerged. The woman developed a high temperature back home in Northern Ireland last Friday after seeing friends in Sierra Leone. Tonight, her flights were being studied so fellow passengers could be warned in case she tests positive. A source said: “She sensibly sought help from the NHS as soon as she felt unwell. She is in isolation and being treated for a fever, chills and severe headache.” Health bosses said the tests were a “precautionary measure”. The unnamed patient has tested positive for malaria at Belfast’s Royal Victoria Hospital.
