Spain fears Ebola but government says all under control

Spain is well-equipped to contain the Ebola virus, the government says, but many Spaniards are worried about how the disease is being managed after a nurse became the first confirmed case of the deadly virus being contracted outside Africa.

Teresa Romero is being treated in a Madrid hospital. She is one of six people placed in quarantine since Monday while more than 50 healthcare workers are under observation because of their contact with the nurse and two repatriated Catholic missionaries who died of Ebola in Madrid in August and September.
