A doctor at the centre who spoke to our correspondent under the condition of anonymity said the patient is from Guinea where the Ebola virus emanated.

“A test is being run on the patient but the result is not yet out. I can confirm to you that the patient is presently in our facility and under close watch of the officials.”

Though still a suspected case, the result according to the doctor will be out by Friday.

It is believed that with the new case of suspected patient, the government will begin a new set of primary and secondary contact tracing.
