The suspected Ebola patient screened at Entebbe International Airport on Saturday has tested negative for the Ebola virus.

The samples taken from the 21 year-old Nigerian National Indicated that the patients suffered from Malaria

The victim had earlier presented with Vomiting, Headache, fever Yellow signs and was therefore a probable case of Ebola since she had travelled through Liberia.

The director general health services at the ministry of health Dr. Jane Acheng says this is the fourth suspected case identified at the airport that has tested negative for Ebola.

Dr. Acheng says the government is reinforcing its screening services at Entebbe International Airport to cope with the high number of passengers.

She says the screening services will continue to target passengers from West African Ebola ravaged countries either coming in directly or through connecting flights from the neighboring countries of Kenya and Ethiopia.
