BBC: Czech health workers spark diplomatic row with Ghana

Ghana wants to lodge a formal complaint over the steps taken by Czech authorities in case of a student from Ghana suspected of having Ebola, the BBC News website wrote on Thursday. The student from Ghana with reported cold symptoms failed to wait for health clearance at Prague’s international airport on Monday. The police and health authorities stopped him at the main railway station and covered him in black plastic, before rushing him to hospital. Ghana’s envoy to Prague told the BBC that the student, who was released shortly afterwards, had been left traumatised by the experience. According to the spokeswoman for the Czech Foreign Ministry, they have not received any complaint so far.
