A scientist who was infected with Ebola while working for the World Health Organization in Sierra Leone has arrived in Germany for treatment in a Hamburg hospital, officials said Wednesday.
He said "Hamburg has the capabilities to carry out this kind of treatment."
WHO spokeswoman Fadela Chaib identified the patient as a man from Senegal infected while working for the agency as a consultant.
The WHO is not giving the man's name or his condition for privacy reasons.
To date, the WHO says more than 240 health care workers have developed the disease in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria; more than 120 have died.
