New Delhi: A man having severe fever was admitted to AIIMS Tuesday amid fears that he has contracted Ebola, which the hospital authorities are yet to confirm.

The patient, referred by a private hospital in Jodhpur, was admitted to the Medicine department.

"The patient has been admitted in the Medicine department of AIIMS under professor Dr Sanjeev Sinha. He has symptoms of high grade fever and appears to be suffering from viral hemorrhagic fever.
