  • France - UNICEF worker treated for ebola after transfer from Sierra Leone - recovered, discharged

    I wonder if the plane flew this patient from Sierra Leone to Paris? (edit: Please see this thread http://www.flutrackers.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=229798)

    France is treating a United Nations 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.
