Dear lord, they've invented a new pestilence... don't let them fool you by saying it's mild...it has a purpose.
The rare viral infection does not spread easily between humans and most people recover within a few weeks.
Public Health England (PHE) said the patient was a resident of Nigeria where the virus was probably contracted.
The patient had been staying at a naval base in Cornwall but is now being treated at the infectious diseases unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London.
Its experts are working closely with NHS colleagues "as a precautionary measure" and will be contacting people who might have been in close contact with the individual to provide information and health advice.
This includes contacting a number of passengers who travelled in close proximity to the patient on the same flight to the UK.
The patient travelled to London from Nigeria on 2 September and anyone who has not been contacted yet from that flight is advised no further action is required.
