South Korean health authorities said Friday they have quarantined a Nigerian national with high fever as a precautionary move as they check to see whether the person has been infected with the Ebola virus. The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said they are conducting detailed tests on the man, but judging by clinical specimens and his symptoms, it seems unlikely that he has contracted the deadly hemorrhagic fever. The highly contagious illness is sweeping across some parts of Western Africa, including Nigeria, and has claimed thousands of lives. The KCDC said the man arrived in the country on Thursday via a flight that took off from Doha, Qatar. Because his body temperature reached 38.2 degrees Celsius on arrival and he did not clearly state why he wanted to enter the country, he was not allowed in the country by immigration officials. He was then put on another plane heading for Doha early Friday, but the jet had to return to Incheon International Airport after he again experienced a high fever. The public health and safety agency also said they have checked the man's background. "The man is a resident of Aba, a Nigerian city 500 kilometers from Lagos, where Ebola cases have been reported," a health official said. He said more conclusive test results will come out in the evening.
This is an urgent report: QATAR, a questionable allied country with the United States and Saudi Arabia has recently topped US news reports for their efforts to coordinate with Al Qaeda and ISIS / ISIL regarding hostage exchanges... most notably Sgt. Bergdahl for 5 top Al-Qaeda operatives. Recently, QATAR has also been involved with hostage exchanges between ISIS and several European nations as well as being the communication-link between ISIS and the United States.
The main problem with this initial report, is that a potentially infected person from Nigeria, was in QATAR, on an airplane heading into Seoul, South Korea, and allied nation with the United States. He was not able to explain why he sought entry into South Korea, and was sent back out of the country back to Nigeria when the plane needed to return to Seoul, South Korea due to his deteriorating health in-flight. No further information is available at this time.
