Australian traveller tested for Ebola

Article via Radio New Zealand :

An Australian man who fell seriously ill after returning home from a trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo during the Ebola outbreak, has been taken to hospital as a precaution.

The man, aged in his twenties has been quarantined at the Gold Coast University Hospital, the ABC reported.
Queensland Health spokeswoman Heidi Carroll said the man's test results should be known in a few hours, but he could be suffering from another fever.
"This could be a person who is presented with fever and has malaria, so it's too early to tell what this patient has so we will just have to wait and see."
