Korean health authorities confirmed that tests have turned out NEGATIVE for a Nigerian man suspected of having Ebola symptoms.
The welfare ministry says the man is not infected with the Ebola virus, however, they may decide to conduct a second test on him depending on the results of a Malaria test.
The 39-year-old entered the country yesterday and was isolated for tests due to high fever.
Authorities are also closely monitoring flight attendants and workers at the Immigration Service who have a higher chance of coming in contact with those in Ebola-hit countries.
