    A surgeon who contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone is in critical condition, and possibly sicker than any patient to arrive in the US from the disease-ravaged region of west Africa, a spokesman from the Nebraska hospital where he will be treated said on Saturday.
    Dr Martin Salia, a permanent US resident, arrived in Omaha on Saturday afternoon, having left Freetown on Friday, by air ambulance. He was due to be immediately transported to Nebraska medical center.
    “He is critically ill, a good deal sicker than our previous patients, and perhaps sicker than any patient that has been transported from west Africa,” Taylor Wilson, a spokesman for the hospital, told the Guardian.
