(Open): Wall Street shares tumbled at the open on Wednesday, in what some analysts attributed to nervousness following the diagnosis of the first case of the Ebola virus on US soil.

In early trading, the Dow Jones index was down 105.73 points at 16,937.17 while the broader S&P 500 fell 12.76 points to 1,959.53.

The tech-heavy Nasdaq index fell 27.64 points to 4,465.75.

The Dow had only three winners, with leader McDonald's up just 0.2%.

Bearing the brunt of the Dow's losses were some of the biggest industrial conglomerates in the US.

United Technologies and Boeing were both down 1.4%, while General Electric shed 1.3%.
