The report said that the peacekeeper’s fever could be a recurring case of malaria which he previously had.

The 133 peacekeepers from Liberia arrived on Wednesday and were immediately brought to Caballo island near Corregidor for a three-week quarantine.

The ebola virus has killed up to almost 5,000 in West Africa.
