      Suspected case of Ebola within Region Uppsala

      Press release • Jan 04, 2019 12:44 CET


      The laser law in Enköping has received a case of suspected ebolas infection. Ebola is a very serious disease with bleeding symptoms. The emergency room at the hospital is therefore currently closed. The patient is isolated and staff who have met the patient are taken care of.
      The patient is now cared for at the infection clinic at the University Hospital in Uppsala and is isolated.
      Patients who have intended to go to the emergency room at the hospital in Enköping are primarily referred to primary care, or the emergency room at the University Hospital in Uppsala. Västmanland Hospital Västerås will also be able to assist.
      Test answers will probably come sometime tonight. Yet it is only a matter of suspicion, even other diseases are quite possible.
