Low risk: However, Austrian authorities say the risk that the woman had died from the Ebola virus (pictured) was 'extremely low'

The corpse of a Nigerian woman who died shortly after touching down in United Arab Emirates capital Abu Dhabi on sunday is being tested for Ebola.

The health authority in the emirate said in a statement carried by the Emirati state news agency WAM that the 35-year-old woman was traveling from Nigeria to India for treatment of advanced metastatic cancer.

Her health deteriorated while in transit at Abu Dhabi International Airport and as medics were trying to resuscitate her, they found signs that suggested a possible Ebola virus infection.
