Doctor with Ebola arrives in US from Sierra Leone

A surgeon who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone has arrived in the United States for treatment.
    
Dr. Martin Salia landed at Eppley Airfield in Omaha on Saturday afternoon and will be transported to the city’s Nebraska Medical Center.
    
The hospital says the medical crew transporting Salia described his condition as critical, and that he is possibly in worse condition than other people treated for the disease in the United States.
    
Salia will be the third Ebola patient to be treated at the Omaha facility.
    
Salia came down with Ebola symptoms Nov. 6, but tested negative for the virus. He tested positive on Monday.
    
He was working as a general surgeon at Kissy United Methodist Hospital in the Sierra Leone capital, Freetown, which is not an Ebola treatment unit.
