Doctors at Mumbwa District Hospital in Central province are investigating two cases of possible Ebola, the Watchdog understands.
Hospital authorities are refusing to disclose details but sources say a man who recently travelled from Congo is been held in isolation as doctors are examining his disease to see if it is Ebola. Sources further say a nurse at the hospital has also shown signs of Ebola.
The first suspected case involves a Congolese truck driver who recently entered the country and fell ill in Mumbwa.
He has been in isolation since Thursday September 4, 2014.
