LONDON — A health worker who returned from West Africa and was found to have Ebola when she arrived home in Scotland was transferred on Tuesday to Britain’s designated treatment center for the disease in London.

The authorities also reported that two more people were being tested for the virus.

The sudden flurry of episodes involving travelers from countries at the center of the Ebola epidemic raised questions about screening procedures at British airports, where passengers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are supposed to be scrutinized for symptoms of Ebola, such as high temperatures.

The patient in the confirmed case in Scotland was identified in British news reports as Pauline Cafferkey. She had returned to Glasgow on Sunday after working since November with the charity Save the Children in Sierra Leone.

The British authorities are trying to contact people who were on the same flights as Ms. Cafferkey via Casablanca, Morocco, and Heathrow Airport near London.
