The authorities said the hospital in Enkoping where the patient was first admitted had its emergency room shut down and the staff who treated the patient were "cared for".

"Test results will probably be received sometime this evening".

A suspected case of the deadly Ebola virus has been reported by a Swedish hospital, officials said Friday, adding the patient has been isolated. "At this stage, it is just a suspicion, other illnesses are entirely possible", a statement from regional health authorities in Uppsala, about 70 kilometres (45 miles) north of Stockholm, said.

The Ebola virus is so contagious the ER room in the Enköping hospital was closed for decontamination Friday morning with patients redirected to Västerås hospital instead, reports Sweden's Afton Bladet.

Uppsala chief medical officer confirmed the patient was vomiting blood, a symptom of the fatal disease.

"The patient came home from a trip to, among other places, Burundi, in central Africa, three weeks ago, but they have not as far as we are aware visited any areas where there is active Ebola contagion".

The Democratic Republic of Congo has been experiencing an Ebola outbreak for nearly six months, which has killed 356 of the 585 people infected.
