Via The Local.de: Woman being tested for Ebola in Berlin. Excerpt:
Update: Around 600 people are quarantined inside a Job Centre in Pankow after a 30-year-old West African had been taken to Berlin's Virchow hospital after showing symptoms of Ebola.
An employee at a Job Centre in Berlin's Pankow district told broadcaster rbb that one of her clients showed the early symptoms of the Ebola virus.
The woman had collapsed and emergency medical services were called. According to the Berliner Zeitung, she said she had had contact with victims of the deadly disease in her homeland.
An initial assessment determined that the patient was showing symptoms of Ebola and the paramedics put in place quarantine measures, according to a spokesman for the Berlin fire department at the Job Centre on Storkower Strasse. The patient was immediately isolated in an ambulance.
Berlin's fire department, which oversees the emergency medical services, would not confirm that it was handling a case of Ebola and that quarantine had been enforced at the Job Centre.
Police have reportedly emptied and closed down the building. Those who came in contact with the woman have been isolated inside.
