Via BBC News: Ebola scare in Nigeria false alarm: WHO. Excerpt:
A man who died in southern Nigeria in a suspected case of Ebola did not have the deadly virus, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said.
The country was declared free of the virus a year ago.
Ten people were quarantined after coming into contact with the man, who was said to have shown Ebola-like symptoms.
A WHO spokesman later confirmed the man had tested negative for Ebola and Lassa fever.
He died shortly after being admitted to hospital in Calabar, officials said.
