Ebola is Back! Nurse Tests Positive

The people of Rome suddenly have something to worry about as the Italian Air Force has revealed that an Italian nurse who tested positive for the Ebola virus after returning from Sierra Leone has been transferred to Spallanzani Hospital in Rome.

The Force said the transfer of the 27-year-old from Sardinia was organised after his blood sample tested positive on Tuesday for the virus.

The Italian Health Ministry also said in a statement that the man, who worked in Sierra Leone as a volunteer for the Emergency Medical Charity, flew back to Italy on May 8 and felt the first symptom of the disease two days later.

It said the hospital was expected to issue a statement about the nurse’s condition.
The ministry added that it was the second Ebola case treated in Italy.
