(Reuters) - A British military healthcare worker who tested positive for Ebola in Sierra Leone is being flown back to Britain and four others are being assessed, officials in London said on Thursday.
The unnamed healthcare worker who has contracted the disease was being transported in a specially equipped medical plane and will be treated in an isolation unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London, the country's designated Ebola treatment centre.
On board the plane are two other military healthcare workers who have not been diagnosed with Ebola but were found to require further assessment because of contact with the diagnosed person. They will be monitored for symptoms at the Royal Free.
