Fifty individuals are currently under surveillance in Spain after a Spanish nurse contracted the virus after treating two Ebola patients in the country.
Government authorities are monitoring them for possible signs of Ebola, as they are suspected to have had contact with the nurse, New York Times reports.
The Spanish government is said to be facing criticism over the perceived lax manner in which they handled the Ebola case.
Reports state that it took almost one week for the nurse to be tested for Ebola even after she contacted a medical center on September 30th, complaining that she felt feverish.
Because Spain is a developed country, its citizens reportedly have high expectations about the country’s capacity to handle the disease.
