Doctors rule out Ebola infection in Romanian patient
BUCHAREST Sun Aug 10, 2014 10:08pm IST

(Reuters) - Romanian health authorities said on Sunday that a 51-year-old Romanian man suspected of having contracted a severe infectious disease during a visit to Nigeria last month did not have Ebola.

The man flew to Romania from Nigeria on July 25 in good medical condition. Later he had symptoms of high fever, vomiting and diarrhea.

"We've taken all epidemiological data, step by step, and we found those elements that rule out Ebola infection in this patient in a 99 percent proportion," Adrian Streinu-Cercel, director of the Matei Bals Infectious Diseases Institute, told reporters.

On no grounds except methodological individualism, it seems fair to call these recent "no go" reports fake for the sake of limiting panic. Too many bleeding feverish people in the news and not one +? Even with the expected skewing towards more visibility and alarmism, I find it very, or extremely, unnatural that every euro/american case is dismissed in a few hours as negative. Comment from anyone famiiar with epidemics?
