London: A second health worker is being tested for Ebola in Scotland after returning from West Africa, a day after another was diagnosed with the disease in Glasgow, Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Tuesday.

Sturgeon told BBC radio there was a "low probability" the second worker had the disease.

"Although this is another returning healthcare worker from West Africa, the patient here has had no, as far as we`re aware, direct contact with people infected with Ebola," said Sturgeon.

"This patient over the course of today will be transferred for tests."
