New Ebola Patient in Nebraska

The NY Times reports that Sierra Leone surgeon, Dr. Martin Salia, was placed into a transportation cubical specifically designed to contain patients exposed to infectious pathogens and flown to Nebraska. Martin is currently being treated at the same facility where two other Americans had been successfully treated. However numerous news sources believe that the doctor is far too critically ill to be saved. His Ebola presentation was somewhat atypical. Martin had treated several Ebola infected patients at various facilities in Sierra Leone. Initially he presented with signs and symptoms suggestive of Ebola. However when Martin's blood was drawn for Ebola, he tested negative. Thus he believed that he had malaria. Becoming progressive sicker each day, he was retested for Ebola. This time he tested positive. On a ominous note the AP reports that every physician that had been infected with Ebola in Sierra Leone had died. 
We wish Dr. Salia strength and a full recovery.
