Fear As British Man Dies Of Suspected Ebola Even Though He Has NEVER Visited Africa
A British man has died of suspected Ebola in the Macedonian capital of Skopje despite not having been to Africa.
If confirmed, the unnamed 58-year-old is the first British victim of the Ebola outbreak that has killed thousands in West Africa and has spread to North America and Europe.
The 58-year-old Briton had stayed in his hotel room for three days with severe stomach ache but was rushed to hospital at 3pm yesterday but died within 90 minutes.
The man’s death and nationality was confirmed by the Macedonian Foreign Ministry last night and the its head of infectious diseases, Dr Jovanka Kostovska, said the Briton had been suffering from fever, vomiting and internal bleeding.
These are all symptoms of Ebola, which raises suspicions with this patient,’ she said.
A second man, 72, a friend of the deceased, has also shown symptoms of the disease.
Macedonian officials said last night the unnamed victim had flown the Skopje directly from Britain and had not been to any countries known to be battling Ebola outbreaks.
It raises the terrifying possibility that he contracted the disease in the UK or Macedonia.
One begins to wonder how he contracted the virus even without visiting Africa. This EVD is turning into something else, and something needs to be done rapidly before it becomes a plague that will be too difficult to contain.
