American Health Worker With Ebola Arrives in U.S.


WebMD News from HealthDay

March 13, 2015 -- An American health worker infected with Ebola arrived from West Africa Friday and was admitted to a National Institutes of Health high-level containment facility in Maryland.

The NIH said the unidentified patient -- reportedly in serious condition -- was infected in Sierra Leone and was flown to the United States in isolation on a chartered flight. The patient is the 11th person with Ebola to be treated in the U.S. since August, NBC Newsreported.

The high-level containment facility in Bethesda is the same one where nurse Nina Pham was treated for Ebola and where a doctor and nurse with suspected Ebola infection were kept until it was determined they did not have the deadly virus.

Of the 10 people treated for Ebola so far in the United States, eight have survived and two have died, NBC News reported.
