    I don't know if this might not be a mistaken quote, as this case does not seem to appear as an imported contact on WHO lists. I have scoured the French- and German- speaking Google for more results, but that's the only source - one day ago. At present, there does not seem to be any Ebola patient in Switzerland.

    From what I understand from this board and members who posted WHO regulations, governments/Ministries of Health are required to release positive Ebola test information to WHO, but can refuse to allow WHO to release the information. Countries with positive cases may not want information publicized because they fear economic reprisals.
