Vietnam releases two Nigerians isolated for Ebola tests, saying no symptoms shown


HANOI (AFP) - Vietnam has released two Nigerians isolated after arriving from west Africa with fevers, saying they show no symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus.

Ebola test results for the pair are not yet known, but the Health Ministry said their condition had improved.

"After 24 hours of monitoring, the two patients were without fever, showing no abnormal signs or symptoms related to Ebola," it said in a statement released late on Wednesday.

The two men will be put under "community surveillance" for three weeks from the date they left the affected area, the ministry said.
