Bashkortostan quarantines arrivals from Ebola-stricken countries, a source in the Bashkortostan Health Ministry press service told Interfax on Wednesday.
"The arrivals are compelled to visit outpatient clinics at their place of residence. They will be sent to city infectious disease hospitals for additional tests if necessary," he said.
The first arrival from Nigeria, a student, was admitted to city infectious disease hospital No. 4 on Tuesday for preventive purposes, the source continued.
"The purpose of his hospitalization is quarantine and medical surveillance required by his arrival from Nigeria. The quarantined man is in a satisfactory condition, he does not run a fever and has no other complaints. He is not exhibiting disease symptoms," the source noted.
Quarantine is mandatory for everyone arriving from Ebola-stricken countries, the source pointed out.
A number of media outlets said earlier a student of a Bashkortostan higher education establishment had been hospitalized over Ebola suspicions. They claimed the man "had classic symptoms: a fever of 40 degrees Celsius and profuse discharging."
