Spanish priest with Ebola dies in hospital

Published: 08.12.14, 11:55 / Israel News

The first European infected by a strain of Ebola that has killed over 1,000 people in West Africa, Spanish priest Miguel Pajares, has died in hospital, a spokeswoman from Madrid health authorities said on Tuesday.


Pajares, 75, was airlifted from Liberia on August 7 after contracting the disease while working for a non-governmental organisation in the African country.


He was repatriated with co-worker Juliana Bohi, a nun who has tested negative for the disease.
