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.

Five people have been hospitalised in Spain after a nurse contracted Ebola after caring for a victim transported back from West Africa.

Madrid health officials have released a video of the room being cleaned where the victim died to show precautions are being taken to prevent the virus spreading.

The nurse who tested positive on Monday is the first person to become infected in Europe.

Four others who have been in contact with her are being monitored in hospital including the nurse’s husband.
