A 15-year-old boy with Ebola-like symptoms is being treated in an isolation ward in Upper Austria. The young man was admitted to Linz General Hospital on Friday morning, suffering from a high fever.

He has recently returned from a trip to West Africa, where there have been more than 3,000 cases of the disease since it was first identified in Guinea in February.

Blood samples from the patient have been sent to Vienna for analysis. A result is expected by Saturday morning.

A suspected case of Ebola in Vienna was given the all clear on Wednesday, and earlier alarms in Tyrol and Upper Austria all proved not to be Ebola.
