A 15-year-old boy who was admitted to Linz General Hospital on Friday having symptoms consistent with Ebola has now been confirmed as having malaria.

He had 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.

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.
