The patient had recently traveled to Canada from Nigeria, where a
state of emergency has been declared over the Ebola outbreak in West
Africa. The patient was put in isolation after showing flu-like
symptoms and fever.
"I can now confirm a recent case that underwent testing at the
National Microbiology Laboratory in Winnipeg was found to test
negative for Ebola virus disease," Ontario Health Minister Eric
Hoskins said in a statement.
