Spanish priest with Ebola dies in hospital

Madrid - 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 spokesperson from Madrid health authorities said on Tuesday.

Pajares, aged 75, was airlifted from Liberia on 7 August 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.

May his soul rest in peace and deep condolences to the family and the nation. I am worried that this Ebola is out of control. Didn't he get the US drug? This is scary

Kensong, the reason for him dying eventhough he received the drug could be his age counting against him. Maybe his body was too weak already when they started treatment. Have a little faith and don't be so quick to give up.
