British media said the female detainee was in her 30s and from Sierra Leone, one of the countries worst affected by the west African Ebola outbreak. She was being held at the Dungavel House centre south of Glasgow, which is used to house unsuccessful asylum seekers before they are deported from Britain. “The results of the viral haemorrhagic fever (Ebola) tests which have been carried out are negative,” said a spokesman for NHS (National Health Service) Lanarkshire, the local health authority.
