Health officials in Sweden have confirmed that they are currently investigating a suspected case of Ebola virus in the capital city of Stockholm.
"So far it's just a suspected case," the official said, without giving more details.
The person fell ill after visiting an area known to be hit by the virus and is now being held in isolation, the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet reported on its website.
Aake Oertsqvist, a specialist in infection control responsible for the Stockholm area, was quoted as saying the risk of an Ebola outbreak in Sweden was "very low".
"The virus is not airborne, but is spread among humans through direct or indirect contact via blood and other fluids," he was quoted as saying.
