An Ebola scare hit a nude beach this week. A boat arrived on a Maspalomas beach in the Canary Islands, filled with almost two dozen undocumented travelers. Some of them had fevers, prompting officials to initiate their own Ebola protocol, isolating the migrants on the beach for five hours as nude tourists looked on.
The officials there asked the travelers that whether they had been to one of the West African countries affected by the Ebola outbreak, but eventually determined that none of them had Ebola. Four of the sickest people in the group were hospitalized for reasons unknown, and the rest were transported to begin the deportation process.
The Canary Islands are a territory of Spain off the northwest coast of Africa.
World Health Organization has recently stated that 13,268 people in West Africa have become infected with Ebola since the outbreak began in March. Out of those, 4,960 people have died.
