The man was in Thurn & Taxis training for MSF to giving when he was unwell. The procedure imposed entered into force immediately. According to the Federal Public Health is little chance that he is really infected with the Ebola virus. It might as well be a regular flu or malaria. As the man came in contact in recent weeks with Ebola patients, however, it poses a greater risk. If he were truly infected, do the people in the last days with him came into contact not panic right away. "Only when the symptoms are visible, there is a risk of contamination," says Sven Heyndrickx, spokesman for Health. "The same goes for the people who attended the training of Doctors Without Borders. There was no physical contact with the employee, so the risk of infection is extremely minimal."
