Minor update:

The link on the post above was edited. They say that nobody else has had to be isolated, not even the three medical workers who had contact with him, because they didn't have contact with fluids.

O secretário de Vigilância em Saúde, Jarbas Barbosa, disse que ninguém mais no Brasil precisou ficar em isolamento por causa da suspeita de ebola. "Nem mesmo os três profissionais que tiveram contato com ele, porque não tiveram contato com secreções", disse.

I don't feel that confident about that, but okay...

The results were negative. They're still keeping him isolated and will take another blood sample tomorrow to test him again. They claim he doesn't have a fever and seems well.

Hey! We know from the Sawyer case and others that first negative results are expected if the virus quantity in blood is not yet enough. Let's wait to hear the results from the second test and hope that neither the hostel roomates nor medics start showing symptoms. I guess we can both agree that if something starts in this side of the world its a "stock, pray and run" situation. Don't know much about Brazil's health system, but the Argentinian public system is border on collapse by now =(
Regarding the "contact with fluids" bit, I am with you, brother. Let's hope this does not end up confirming the aerosol theory correct.

The results of the second exam were released, collected 48 hours after the first one, and the result was negative again. The patient remains in hospital but was removed from isolation, and have expectation to be released in 24 hours. Another 64 possible contacts under observation(not isolated) were now discarded too.

And complementing the timeline made by LukeDAP:
18th: left Guinea - was in Morocco
19th: arrived in São Paulo
??: went to Argentina on a bus, and returned to Brasil in Bernado de Irigoyem, AR
22th: went back to Brazil in Dionisio Cerqueira, Santa Catarina
24th: went to Paraná and stayed in a hostel, sharing a room with two other men from Africa

8th: started having symptoms
9th: went to the hospital
10th: was transferred to Rio de Janeiro and tested
11th: first test results come out negative
13th: second tests results confirms negative

And now back to check CHIKUNGUNYA evolution
