A nurse wears protective clothing as he demonstrates the facilities in place at the Royal Free Hospital in north London in preparation for a patient testing positive for the Ebola virus. The Saudi Health Ministry denied Thursday the appearance of a second Ebola virus fever case in Jeddah.

The Health Ministry denied Thursday the appearance of another Ebola virus fever case in Jeddah and urged the media not to publish such reports without confirmation.

“We will inform the public about the development of the new killer virus in full transparency and have taken measures to protect citizens and residents from such infectious diseases,” the ministry said.

Meanwhile, Abdul Aziz Al-Zahrani, the brother of the man who died of Ebola on Wednesday, blamed the negligence of medical staff at a private hospital in the city for the death.

“They delayed identifying Ibrahim’s disease, resulting in his demise,” he said.

He ruled out suggestions that Ibrahim had taken medicines that complicated his disease.

He said Ibrahim had stayed two days at a private hospital north of Jeddah before he was transferred to King Fahd Hospital.

He requested the ministry to conduct medical tests on all the members of Ibrahim’s family to make sure they are free from the disease.
