A patient at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast is being tested for Ebola.
The Public Health Agency (PHA) confirmed to the BBC that the person has been placed in isolation.
It said the person recently travelled in an Ebola affected area and was being assessed and tested in accordance with a national contingency plan.
Having already tested positive for malaria, a blood sample will confirm if they also have contracted Ebola.
The BBC understands the patient has been in the Royal Victoria Hospital's special isolation unit since Friday.
In line with national guidelines, nursing staff are wearing protective clothing while caring for the patient. :eek::eek: :zoned:
