WASHINGTON- A surgeon infected with Ebolain Sierra Leone will be flown to the University of NebraskaMedical Center for treatment, “CBS Evening News” reported onThursday.
The surgeon was born in Sierra Leone but is a U.S. resident, CBS reported.
Representatives for the University of Nebraska Medical Center said hospital officials could not confirm the report.
“Staff members here have been in a state of readiness to treat Ebola patients since we were first visited by the U.S. State Department in early August,” the medical center said in a statement.
The hospital said it would have confirmation only when a plane was en route with a patient on board and “that is not the case right now.”
