“The only reason we can say that there was no one in the building was because there was nothing,” said Dr Rajesh Ramesh, the chief medical officer of the countrys largest public hospital.
“The whole building had been evacuated, there was a large crowd of people.”
Ramesh said that while the virus was in a quarantine room, he did not expect it to be tested.
“We do not have the capacity to test it.
But, when we do, we will have a high degree of confidence,” he said.
Dr Narsimha Rao, a microbiologist who works at the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) International Centre for Biomedical Research in Geneva, said there was the possibility that the virus could have been passed from a patient to a laboratory worker.
“There is the possibility there was some interaction between the patient and the lab worker and they passed the virus on to the patient,” she said.
