A driver with Ebola-like symptoms, was assisted and escorted to Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam earlier on Tuesday.

Emergency services came across a driver in a parking lot at Noordeloos, Zuid Holland, near Lexmond who seemed to be unwell. He is believed to have recently returned from an area where Ebola is prevalent, the Dutch security service RIVM said.

Aid workers with protective suits helped the person out of the car and carried him to a waiting ambulance.
