Ebola fears hit Hong Kong as woman isolated with major symptoms

Fears of an Ebola outbreak have hit Hong Kong after a woman was put in isolation after presenting to doctors with dizziness, fever, vomiting and diarrhoea.

The 54-year-old female patient, who is usually in good health, presented with headaches, dizziness, fever, vomiting and diarrhoea yesterday sparking fears of a major outbreak.

Doctors fears were realised when it was revealed she had travelled to Kinshasa, the capital of Democratic Republic of the Congo from May 27 to September 14, 2019. 

They confirmed she had no contact with sick persons, nor had she visited health-care facilities and affected provinces but was immediately isolated while tests are carried out.
