The funeral of a married father who died in the UK's first case of Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is due to take place.
Fazal Ahmad, 38, died in hospital on Saturday, two days after laboratory tests confirmed he had the disease.
He returned to Glasgow from Afghanistan last Tuesday, via a connecting flight from Dubai.
He was initially treated in isolation at Gartnavel General Hospital's Brownlee Centre in Glasgow, which specialises in infectious disease, before being flown from Scotland to a high-security infectious disease unit at London's Royal Free Hospital.
His body is being flown back to Scotland and his funeral will take place at Glasgow Central Mosque. He will be buried in the Muslim Cemetery in Castlemilk.
His friend Mohammed Asif, acting chairman of the Scottish Afghan Society, said the community has been saddened by Mr Ahmad's death.
He said: "Everybody is quite shocked. He was a nice guy, helpful to everybody and very pleasant. He was young and was a family man who worked hard for his family. It's sad he died so young."
Mr Asif said Mr Ahmad was an Afghan national who came to Britain seeking asylum several years ago and lived with his wife and young son, aged around five or six, in Glasgow, where he owned a garage in the east end.
He said his friend had been in Afghanistan to attend his brother's wedding in Samangan province.
Concerns have now been raised about three of Mr Ahmad's family members in the village of Aibak, Afghanistan, who are said to be displaying symptoms of the fever. Mr Asif said: "We have tried to give them advice, telling them that anyone showing symptoms should stay away from the rest of the family. We have also contacted a local politician and sent over British news reports to be translated, to let them know how dangerous it can be."
