Via The Guardian: Briton with Ebola virus being flown home.
A British national who tested positive for Ebola in Sierra Leone is being evacuated to the UK on a Royal Air Force jet, Sierra Leone's health ministry has said.
It is the first confirmed case of a Briton contracting the deadly virus, for which there is no cure, during the recent outbreak.
An airport official confirmed that the RAF flight has taken off from Freetown Lungi airport with the patient onboard. "I saw it sitting there for more than one hour but it has just taken off now. Some doctors assisted the man onboard and they've just come back now," the official said.
Sidie Yayah Tunis, director of communications for Sierra Leone's health ministry, said the man has been transported to the main airport in the coastal town of Lungi and will fly to Britain.
The Department of Health said the man is "not currently seriously unwell". He will be taken to the Royal Free Hospital in London.
I wonder if this man is the WHO worker mentioned in the post just below.
