UPDATE: Almost 100 people under observation for Ebola in Spain

AROUND 100 people are currently under observation for Ebola after coming in contact with Spain’s Ebola nurse Teresa Romano.

As well as the 15 people currently admitted to the Carlos III Hospital isolation unit, a further 83 people are being monitored at home after coming into contact with Romano.

These 83 people are subject to home visits twice a day to ensure that they are taking their temperature and to find out the results.

This is the same process that was used to assess Romero, who was diagnosed with Ebola on September 30.

Among those being monitored are ambulance staff and residents who live in the same block as Romero in Alcorcon.

Of the 98 people under observation, only Romero has tested positive for Ebola.
