There is a chance that Ebola has gotten a little closer to home today.
A West African woman working at a job centre in the Pankow district of Berlin has collapsed with Ebola-like symptoms sparking the emergency quarantine of 600 people. Having recently returned from West Africa she has admitted she had contact with Ebola victims in Nigeria.
The employment centre has been sealed off, with 600 people inside the Berliner Zeitung reports. They were held for several hours. Those who were established to have had close contact with her were taken to hospital and the rest of those held were released.
There have already been Ebola cases reported in Spain and Austria. A spanish priest, Miguel Pajares became the first person in Europe to die of the disease after he was transported from Liberia for treatment.
