WHO employee infected by Ebola to be treated in Germany

Bishkek (AKIpress) - ebola in Africa The first Ebola patient to be treated in Germany landed at Hamburg airport in a private jet that has been modified to transport patients requiring isolation. From the airport, he was brought to the city's university clinic in an ambulance that was escorted by a convoy of police cars.

The University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf specializes in treating contagious diseases and sports a brand-new isolation ward.

The unnamed patient had been transferred from a hospital in Sierra Leone's capital, Freetown. "We hope that his condition will improve quickly and that he will recover fully from the disease," World Health Organization spokeswoman Fadela Chaib told DW. She confirmed that the patient is an epidemiologist from Senegal who contracted the disease while working at a laboratory in Kailahun. The district in eastern Sierra Leone is among those hardest hit by the disease.
