    Ebola: Nurse with a "suspicious fever" in hospital in the Val-de-Marne

    A nurse at the Bégin hospital (Val-de-Marne) in Saint-Mande was hospitalized Thursday afternoon as she is likely to have contracted the Ebola virus while caring for a humanitarian caregiver who had been affected by the virus. This professional had looked after Lucie, humanitarian with Doctors Without Borders, who had been contaminated in Liberia, repatriated to France in mid-September and had been declared healed.

    .... She suffers from a high fever but the tests have not yet been performed.

    The nurse lives in Puteaux (Hauts-de-Seine) ...

    Nine vehicles and 24 firefighters, all with hazmat suits... transported her...

    ... The entire staff that had been in contact with the contaminated humanitarian, about 70 people, is monitored by the Begin hospital.

      Possibly both? but not necessarily because we don't know how many days elapsed between the MSF nurse turning seronegative and being released.

        A nurse who authorities believe may be infected with Ebola was rushed to a Paris-area hospital on Thursday afternoon for tests and treatment

        Quote:

        Health authorities believe she could be infected because she treated the Doctors' Without Borders aid worker who arrived in France September 19th for treatment after contracting the disease while working at a hospital in Liberia.

          First tests are negative.
          More tests during the night.

            The article on this link is in French, but what's interesting is the way they evacuated the French nurse. Look at the pictures. No need to understand the language

              [...]
              In France, officials would not provide any information about a possible case involving another nurse. If confirmed, it would be the first instance of Ebola infecting someone through transmission in France.
              [...]
              Later on Thursday, quoting anonymous sources, the French station BFM TV reported that a first series of tests had found the nurse to be negative for Ebola, but that more testing was necessary. The Health Ministry would not comment on that report.
