His suspension for personal conduct was from his no contest plea of the weapons charge, which was reduced to a misdemeanor. Foster was arrested on November 24 for alleged domestic battery at the San Fransisco 49ers' team hotel in Tampa Bay.

Local newspaper the Upsala Nya Tidning reports their attempts to get comment from the hospital have been unanswered as the leadership team remain in a "crisis meeting".

The man was now "in stable condition", he added.

The man had returned from a trip to the east African country of Burundi several weeks ago. Ebola is one of the world's most unsafe diseases and killed over 11,000 people during an epidemic in Africa that started in 2014., while an outbreak is still active in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). All three patients were hospitalized and none died. The hospital in Enkoping shut down its emergency room and monitored its staff after the patient displayed symptoms of Ebola. It is the 10th such outbreak in the Congo since the disease was first detected there in 1976.
