Ebola test proves negative again in Ghana   2014-07-08 17:29:03            

ACCRA, July 8 (Xinhua) -- Test conducted on an American citizen suspected to have contracted the deadly Ebola virus has proved negative, sources close to health authorities in Ghana said late Monday.

This was after the blood sample of the suspected victim was tested by the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research, while the patient and the medical staff who had treated him were all quarantined.

Before coming to Ghana, the American patient was said to have visited two West African countries where the deadly hemorrhagic fever had been wrecking havoc since March.

This is the second Ebola scare in Ghana since the disease entered West Africa.
