    The United Nations worker contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone and has been placed in isolation under high security
    France is treating a UN employee who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, the health ministry said on Sunday.
    “This person, who worked in Sierra Leone in the fight against Ebola, has undergone a secure medical evacuation by specialised aircraft,” the ministry said in a statement.
    The victim has been placed in isolation under high security in an army training hospital in Saint-Mande near Paris.
    A French nurse, who worked for Médecins sans Frontières in Liberia, was treated for Ebola at the same hospital in September and recovered.
    Despite around 500 reports of possible Ebola infections in France since June, not one has so far tested positive, the ministry added.
