Vietnam and Myanmar are testing three patients for the deadly Ebola virus after they arrived in the Southeast Asian nations from Africa suffering fever. Vietnam's Health Ministry said two Nigerians were sent to Ho Chi Minh City's Tropical Disease Hospital for isolation after they arrived in the city by plane.
None of the Nigerian nationals have shown any symptoms other than a fever, the ministry said.
Airline passengers sitting next to the pair, who travelled to Vietnam on Monday from Nigeria via Qatar, have been advised to monitor their health.
In neighbouring Myanmar, a 22-year-old local man was taken to hospital in Yangon, after arriving in the city's main airport on Tuesday.
The Myanmar Centre for Disease and Control and Prevention said the man is believed to have returned from Guinea, having earlier travelled to Liberia - two countries worst effected by the Ebola outbreak.
"Samples were sent to a WHO (World Health Organisation) recognised laboratory to check whether or not Ebola was present," the Facebook statement said.
It added that four people who accompanied the man to hospital were also being kept under observation.
