An American doctor helping to treat Ebola in Liberia has contracted the virus.
Dr Kent Brantly, who works for the charity Samaritan's Purse, reportedly recognised his own symptoms and confined himself to an isolation ward, NBC News reported.
A spokeswoman for the charity said Dr Brantly's wife and two children had been living with him in Africa but are currently in the US.
