Unnamed Patient Does Not Exhibit Symptoms The doctor, who was not identified for privacy reason, does not exhibit symptoms of the hemorrhagic virus.
Nebraska Medical treated three patients with Ebola during the 2014 outbreak.
At this point, the person has not demonstrated any symptoms of the virus, but he or she "will be monitored closely", the facility said.
The current outbreak in the Congo is the second largest of all-time, after almost 1,200 people died of the virus in 2016. If it is necessary, though, the individual will be transferred to the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit, where regular updates will be provided. "Should any symptoms develop, the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit would be activated and the person admitted".

Nebraska Medicine, a network of hospitals, clinics and healthcare colleges, together with academic partner UNMC, are among world leaders in the treatment of Ebola. Attacks on government outposts and civilians by dozens of armed militias have complicated the work of Ebola response teams, who often have had to suspend crucial work tracking cases and isolating people infected with the deadly virus. The latest outbreak in the Congo began in August and has killed 347 people, according to the World Health Organization. The doctor is being monitored in a secure area that is not accessible to the public or any patients. Monitoring could take as long as two weeks, the release states. In 2015, several others were monitored after exposures, none of whom developed the disease.
The virus spreads through contact with bodily fluids and causes haemorrhagic fever with severe vomiting, diarrhoea and bleeding.
