A Thai woman recently returned from Ebola-stricken Liberia has been cleared by doctors who determined she did not have the deadly virus.
Dr Narong Sahametapat, permanent secretary for health, said Friday a checkup done on the 48-year-old woman at the Bamrasnaradura Infectious Diseases Institute last night found she was not running a fever - a early indicator of Ebola Virus Disease infection - and there were no signs of the Ebola virus in her bloodstream.
