ARIANA Grande has cancelled a trip to Spain over fears she could catch the Ebola virus.
The ‘Problem’ singer is said to have become concerned about travelling to the country for a promotional visit after a Spanish nurse, Teresa Romero, contracted the virus, and has now delayed the trip to protect her health.
A source told The Sun newspaper: “Ariana’s promo trip had to be cancelled – her team weren’t prepared to take any chances during the incubation period.
“Of course, some people might think it’s an over-reaction but everyone agreed it was the right decision.
“It’s nothing against her Spanish plans and she was conscious to make sure the visit was put back in the diary in the future.” Although Teresa and three other patients suffering from Ebola in the country have now been given the all clear, it is thought the former Nickelodeon star won’t be rescheduling the trip this month and may even wait until next year before returning.
The source added: “They ended up having to juggle all her plans at the last minute and reschedule the trip.
“Ariana headed to Paris instead and now won’t get round to visiting Spain until November at the earliest, if at all this year.” The outbreak of the virus in West Africa has already claimed the lives of thousands of people but is yet to cause an epidemic in Europe. – Bernama
