Health Ministry: Ghana Testing U.S. Citizen for Ebola

(Reuters) – Authorities in Ghana are testing a U.S. citizen for Ebola after he fell ill following a recent trip to Guinea and Sierra Leone, a senior government official told Reuters on Monday.

The Ministry of Health said the patient, who has not been named, is in quarantine at a clinic in Accra. A spokeswoman for the U.S. embassy in Ghana said it had been informed that a U.S. citizen was being tested but would not give any more details.

A previous suspected Ebola case in Ghana tested negative in April. Health officials have called for regional action to halt a disease that has spread across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, killing at least 467 since February
