Sierra Leone Doctor With Ebola Headed to US is Critically Ill

Freetown: A Sierra Leone surgeon with Ebola being flown to the United States for treatment is critically ill, possibly sicker than other patients treated in the U.S., the Nebraska Medical Center said on Saturday.

Dr Martin Salia, 44, a permanent U.S. resident who caught Ebola working as a surgeon in a Freetown hospital, was stable enough to take a flight from West Africa to the U.S. and was expected to arrive in Nebraska at 4 p.m. local time (22:00 GMT) on Saturday, the hospital said in a statement.
