Symptoms such as fever and abdominal pain may appear up to three weeks after contact with the deadly virus, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Ebola is one of the world's most unsafe diseases and killed over 11,000 people during an epidemic in Africa that started in 2014., while an outbreak is still active in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Health care workers who are unprotected are susceptible to infection because of how close they work with patients during treatment.

Patients who meant to go to the A&E at Enköping hospital were told to go instead to a primary care provider or the University Hospital in Uppsala, the authority added.

Ebola is spread via contact with the bodily fluids of those infected.
