SARATOV, October 29. /TASS/. Healthcare officials in Saratov on Wednesday dismissed socia media rumours that the deadly Ebola virus had arrived in one of Russia's largest cities on the Volga River.
The officials denied reports that the disease was detected in an African student and 21 people were being tested for Ebola.
All African students studying at Saratov's four universities are under medical surveillance, health officials said.
