A 35-year-old woman travelling to India on August 17 for advanced metastatic cancer treatment showed signs that may be consistent with the Ebola Virus infection while in transit in Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Ebola is travelling around the world at a rapid pace, from Saudi Arabia to the USA; cases are popping up around every corner.

”Full safety and precautionary measures have been taken by the medical staff who attended to the patient, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) standards for dealing with suspected cases of infectious diseases,” a statement by The Health Authority in Abu Dhabi (HAAD) reads.

All contacts of the patient, including her husband and five medics, are currently in isolation, pending the Ebola virus test results, HAAD states.
