Staf caring for the patient are using protective clothing and have special ebola training.

Test results were expected to be published on Friday evening.

The patient, who was not named, had been transferred to isolation, Uppsala regional council said in a statement.

"The patient came in this morning". They had then had blood in their vomit, which can be a symptom of Ebola.

The man was now "in stable condition", he added.

It did not say where the patient had travelled, but Sweden's TT news agency said the patient had returned from a trip to Burundi three weeks ago and had not visited any region with the Ebola virus.

The emergency clinic in the Swedish town of Enkoping, where the patient was first admitted, was closed and staff who had been in contact with him were being looked after. While Burundi is now not a risk area for the disease, neighboring Democratic Republic of the Congo has been grappling with an Ebola outbreak since last summer.

Eastern Congo now faces an Ebola outbreak.

Ebola is a hemorrhagic fever that spreads rapidly by contact with the body fluids of an infected person, causing internal bleeding and potentially death.

A person in Sweden is being treated for suspected Ebola contamination at Uppsala University Hospital, the regional authority said on Friday.
