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

Doctors in the Uppsala hospital are now awaiting test results to see if their worst suspicions are confirmed.

"The patient came in this morning".

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

Uppsala chief of medicine Mikael Köhler told regional newspaper UNT that the patient had returned to Sweden from a trip to Burundi among other places three weeks ago, but was not understood to have visited any areas affected by active Ebola outbreaks.

Burundi, where the patient was visiting, borders the Democratic Republic of Congo which is now going through the second-deadliest and second-largest Ebola outbreak in history - with cases surpassing 600 on Wednesday.

An individual was on Friday being treated at Sweden's Uppsala University Hospital with a case of "suspected Ebola infection", according to the regional authority.

Patients who meant to go to the A&E at Enköping hospital were told to go instead to a primary care provider or the University Hospital in Uppsala, the authority added.

The emergency clinic at Enkoping has been closed and staff that were in contact with the patient are also being looked after, the authority said. It is the 10th such outbreak in the Congo since the disease was first detected there in 1976.

Ebola - which causes fever, severe headaches and in some cases hemorrhaging - kills about half of those infected.
