Canadian health officials have ruled out the ebola virus as the cause of a hemorrhagic fever suffered by a man who recently traveled to Liberia.
The man, currently in medical isolation, became sick after he returned to Canada from West Africa, but officials have determined he does not have the virus, reports the Associated Press. There are no other confirmed cases of ebola in Canada.
An outbreak of the virus has killed 59 people in Guinea, on the border of Liberia, in recent days. The fever has no vaccine or specific treatment and ends in bleeding from the mouth or eyes.
