An Indian man has been placed under mandatory quarantine in his home country after tests came back positive for the Ebola virus in his semen, according to new reports. The 26-year-old Indian national was hospitalized nearly two months ago in Liberia after contracting the disease and had since been thought to be cleared of the virus, which turned out to be false.

CNN reports that the man was initially released from a Liberian hospital on September 30 with documents in hand declaring him to be Ebola-free. But Indian authorities later conducted their own tests just to confirm and were surprised to find traces of the virus in the man’s semen.

“Currently, this person is not having any symptoms of the disease,” reads a statement issued by Indian authorities. “However, he would be kept under isolation in the special health facility of (the) Delhi Airport Health Organization, till such time his body fluids test negative and he is found medically fit to be discharged.”

Every discharged male Ebola victim is still a public health threat
