No Ebola symptoms in Russian citizen hospitalized in Kazakhstan
No symptoms of Ebola were found in a Russian citizen earlier hospitalized at the Almaty Airport in Kazakhstan, RIA Novosti reported March 15 citing Russia's Health Ministry.
"As doctors said, no specific symptoms characteristic of that disease were found in this citizen," the ministry said in a message. "There is low probability that the patient's malaise is a result of a development of a disease caused by the Ebola virus."
Ebola is an acute viral disease with high infectiousness and fatality rates.
It is characterized by the development of hemorrhagic syndrome (tendency to skin haemorrhages and bleeding of mucous membranes).
Ebola's fatality ratio reaches 90 percent. Ebola outbreaks occur mostly in the remote villages of the Central and West Africa, near rainforests.
