Madrid - Authorities say two of four new Ebola suspects admitted to hospitals in Spain have tested negative in a first round of tests.
The government's Ebola monitoring committee said on its official Twitter account Friday that the two were a person who arrived on an Air France jet that was isolated at Madrid's airport Thursday and a person who traveled in the same ambulance used to hospitalize infected Spanish nursing assistant Teresa Romero earlier this month. Both had developed fevers. They will be tested a second time within 72 hours.
