      According to ABC, he did also have "febrile symptoms"...

      Plane registration is F-GTAS, flight number AF1300, departed Paris Charles de Gaulle at 09:46 CEST and landed Madrid Barajas at 11:35 CEST.

      Passengers were let out normally.

        [...]The French and Spanish authorities would not confirm that any of the four people have tested positive for Ebola. But in each of the cases — one in France, three in Spain — a link to possible sources of contamination has been established.

          Passenger from evacuated Madrid plane tests negative for Ebola

          MADRID Fri Oct 17, 2014


          (Reuters) - The Nigerian passenger who was taken to a Madrid hospital from an Air France plane by police-escorted ambulance over fears he was suffering from Ebola has tested negative for the disease, the Spanish government said on Friday.

          Another person also admitted to hospital with a fever on Thursday had also initially tested negative for the virus, the government said. This person had traveled in the same ambulance as Teresa Romero, Spain's only known Ebola sufferer.

            Two of four Spanish patients test negative for Ebola

            17/10/2014

            Two of four new patients suspected of being infected with Ebola in Spain have tested negative in a first round of tests, authorities have said.

            The government’s Ebola monitoring committee said on its official Twitter account today that the two were a person who arrived on an Air France jet which was isolated at Madrid’s airport yesterday and a person who travelled in the same ambulance used to take infected Spanish nursing assistant Teresa Romero to hospital earlier this month.
            Both had developed fevers.

            They will be tested again within 72 hours.

            Two others, a missionary who came down with a fever after returning from Liberia and a Red Cross health worker who recently worked with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, are also due to be tested.
