Spanish priest who contracted Ebola in stable condition

A Spanish missionary priest who tested positive for the Ebola virus is in stable condition at a Madrid hospital after being evacuated from Liberia.

Miguel Pajares, 75, was helping to treat people infected with Ebola when he tested positive for the virus at the San Jose de Monrovia Hospital in Liberia earlier this week.

Juliana Bohi, a nun who worked with Mr Pajares, was also brought back but was not infected. Both worked for the San Juan de Dios hospital order, a Catholic humanitarian group that runs hospitals around the world.
