BA RIA-VUNG TAU (VNS) — A Nigerian man named Nweka Fortune Chukwuyem was discharged from the Ba Ria Hospital yesterday afternoon after he tested negative for the Ebola virus infection.

The man is in stable health and has normal body temperature.

His health would be supervised for 21 days, said Nguyen Van Thai, deputy director of the Ba Ria-Vung Tau Department of Health.
