A patient suspected of having been infected with the Ebola virus has been treated at Dr. Soedono General Hospital in Madiun, East Java. The patient, identified only as Muk, formerly worked in Liberia, the country suffering from the worst of the Ebola outbreak.
Head of Dr. Soedono General Hospital's medical treatment Dr. Syaiful Anwar said the authorities had decided to bring the patient in since there was indication that he might have been exposed to the Ebola virus.
'We are still observing the patient's condition. It is clear that he suffers from Malaria. He has had a high fever for days,' Syaiful said as quoted by tribunnews.com on Saturday.
He said if the patient's condition got worse then he would be transferred to the general hospital in Surabaya.
Muk was working in Liberia since March before returning home to Indonesia. As soon as he reached the Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, he was quarantined for a day, as he was suffering from high fever.
He was permitted to return home after recovering but the same fever resurfaced again as soon as he reached his hometown of Madiun.(dic)
