MADRID: An elderly priest in Spain became the first European to die from a fast-spreading Ebola outbreak. He remained admitted in Madrid Hospital for 5 days.
The Roman Catholic priest, Miguel Pajares, was being treated in Spain with an experimental US serum, ZMapp, after being flown to Madrid.
He was the first European patient to be evacuated to Europe from the African outbreak, which according to the WHO, has claimed 1,013 lives since early this year.
It is being said that the priest contracted Ebola at the Saint Joseph Hospital in the Liberian capital Monrovia where he worked with infected patients.
