Two more patients are being tested for Ebola in Scotland and Cornwall.

One patient is being examined for possible symptoms at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, Cornwall, and the other – a female heath worker – at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.

The virus, which had its first case confirmed in the UK yesterday in Glasgow, is just one of several illnesses they could be suffering from.

Nicola Sturgeon, the First Minister, said the Scottish woman had recently returned from West Africa but was “low risk” and had no known contact with the virus.

“Although this is another returning healthcare worker from West Africa, the patient here has had no, as far as we’re aware, direct contact with people infected with Ebola,” she told BBC radio.

“This patient over the course of today will be transferred for tests.”
