Update: Ebola news stories

Following coverage in the press last night (31.07) and this morning (01.08), a Glasgow 2014 spokesperson said:

“There is no Ebola in the Athletes Village of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

We can confirm an athlete was tested for a number of things when he fell ill last week, including Ebola.

The tests were negative and the athlete competed in his event on Thursday.

We are dismayed by some of the sensational and misleading headlines to date and request that these are not repeated going forward.”
