But it's a pretty thin suspicion. Via Gulf Business: Two Suspected Ebola Patients Flee Hospital in Saudi Arabia. Excerpt:
Two men, displaying suspected symptoms of the Ebola virus, ran away from a rural health center located in the Madinah province of Saudi Arabia on Sunday, a Saudi daily reported.
“The two African nationals, who did not have residency permits or any other documentation, came to see the doctor at the health center, complaining of difficulty breathing and bleeding while passing urine,” an official who requested anonymity told Arab News.
Medical officials were unable to conduct a thorough examination and confirm that the patients were infected with the Ebola virus as they ran away after being asked to produce their residency permits.
The doctor present had instructed the center to take the patients to a hospital with better facilities before the duo took off.
The matter was reported to police instantly, the source said.
The police are still searching for the patients, the report added.
The Health Affairs Directorate in Madinah said the patients were from East Africa, a region not affected by Ebola, although their precise nationality had not been identified.
