Spain seeks answers as seven more enter Ebola isolation

Seven people turned themselves in late on Thursday to an Ebola isolation unit in Madrid where Teresa Romero, the nurse who became the first person to contract Ebola outside Africa, lay gravely ill.

Alarm about Ebola's spread around Europe grew on Friday as Macedonia said it was checking for the virus in a British man who died within hours of being admitted to hospital in the capital Skopje on Thursday. A Prague hospital was testing a 56-year-old Czech man with symptoms of the virus.

In Spain, recriminations mounted over Romero, who was infected in hospital as she treated two Spanish missionaries who had caught the haemorrhagic fever in West Africa -- where Ebola has already killed around 4,000 people -- and remained undiagnosed for days despite reporting her symptoms.
