It has been claimed that a case of ebola has been diagnosed in Abu Graib, south of Baghdad.
Ahmed Mohammed, chief of Abu Ghraib Hospital told BasNews on Saturday that a patient was taken to the hospital by his family. Subsequent tests are said to have confirmed that the patient is infected with ebola.
This would be the first case of the disease in Iraq. The patient is under the intense supervision of doctors in a specially sealed room.
“This disease is very dangerous. So far no medical solution has been found for the patient. There is a risk that the disease might spread to other cities in Iraq,” said Mohammed.
He went on, “So far we have not discovered that how the patient was infected with ebola.”
