    Four people with fever considered at risk for Ebola were being tested Thursday in Spain for the virus, including one who arrived on an Air France jet that was isolated at Madrid's airport as a precaution, officials said.

    Other passengers were allowed to disembark. But a passenger with a fever who had traveled from Nigeria was taken by ambulance with a driver wearing protective gear to Madrid's Carlos III hospital.

    Another person with a fever who came into contact with infected Spanish nursing assistant Teresa Romero before she was hospitalized on Oct. 6 was also sent to the same hospital, the Health Ministry said. Romero's condition, meanwhile, appeared to be improving, a ministry official said.

    A missionary was transported to the hospital because he came down with a fever after returning to Spain from Liberia, where he treated Ebola patients, Spain's government said.

    A fourth person, a Red Cross health worker who recently worked with Ebola patients in Sierra Leone, was hospitalized with a fever in Tenerife in the Canary Islands, officials said. Two roommates showing no symptoms were placed in hospital isolation as a precaution.
