Medical tests have cleared a man initially suspected of being
infected with Ebola in Sweden.

The man, who had recently traveled to Central Africa, made
global headlines Friday and sent Swedish authorities into high
alert after arriving at a local emergency department that morning
with symptoms of viral hemorrhagic fever, including vomiting
blood.

That emergency department—at a hospital in Enköping, which is
about 80km northwest of Stockholm—was promptly shuttered, and the
hospital began crisis responses. Authorities transferred the man to
Uppsala University Hospital, where doctors treated him in isolation
in the hospital’s infection unit.
