A Spanish nurse who treated an Ebola victim in Madrid is suspected of being the first person to have contracted the virus outside Africa, Spanish media say. The nurse tested positive for Ebola in initial tests and doctors are awaiting final results, according to reports. She was a member of the team that treated Spanish priest Manuel Garcia, who died of Ebola on 25 September. Some 3,400 people have died in the outbreak - mostly in West Africa.
The Spanish missionary who was flown home to Madrid from Sierra Leone after contracting the Ebola virus has died, according to hospital sources.
According to the Spanish news agency Efe, Manuel Garcia Viejo died from the disease at the Carlos III hospital in Madrid.
Viejo was a medical director of the Hospital Order of San Juan de Dios and was working in the western Sierra Leonean city of Lunsar when he caught the disease.
He was flown to Madrid in an isolation chamber by military plane and received by doctors in fully protective biohazard suits.
Viejo is the second Spanish priest to die of the Ebola virus in the space of a month, after Miguel Pajares died after being flown back to Spain from Liberia.

My coworker told me this morning that she heard from a "source" that is supposedly reliable (take this with a HUGE grain of salt) that there is a pediatric ward in Dallas with four cases of Ebola right now.
I can't think that is true because if it is, it means they have a real stranglehold on the media as a whole and are totally lying to all of us at all levels.
