Scottish Government Confirms Ebola Diagnosed In Glasgow Patient

We wonder if England will be reconsidering the secession vote?

  • *SCOTTISH GOVT: CONFIRMED EBOLA CASE DIAGNOSED IN GLASGOW
  • *SCOTLAND: PATIENT IS A HEALTH CARE WORKER, RETURNED FROM SIERRA LEONE DEC. 28

After Japan's stock market slid overnight following reports of Ebola in Tokyo, one wonders what a recurrence of Ebola headlines will do to risk complacency this time?

 

Perhaps, since the Ebola Tzar's work is done in America, they can lend him out to The Scots?

As The BBC reports,

The Scottish government confirmed the case being investigated was at Glasgow's Gartnavel Hospital.

 

This follows news from Japan overnight of a possible Ebola case...

Japan's Nikkei average surrendered early gains and dropped more than 1.5 percent on Monday after a man was suspected of having contracted the deadly Ebola virus.

 

The benchmark was down 1.1 percent at 17,628.15 points by midday, after falling as low as 17,525 at one point. It had risen 0.4 percent in the morning session.

 

A man who returned to Japan from Sierra Leone on Dec. 23 was suspected of contracting the disease, the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare said.

 

Test results are expected on Tuesday morning. If confirmed, it would be the first diagnosis of the Ebola virus in Japan.
