BAMAKO (Reuters) - A doctor in Mali who treated the patient that sparked a second wave of Ebola in the West African nation has died, the government announced on Thursday.
Oussa Koita, a 70-year-old imam from neighboring Guinea, died in Mali after traveling there last month, exposing others to the disease. The doctor worked at the Bamako clinic where Koita was admitted and wrongly diagnosed with kidney problems. He tested positive for Ebola on Nov. 12.
