A second Ebola patient treated in the United States has died. Dr. Martin Salia 44, a surgeon born in Sierra Leone went back there to help fight the disease in his native country. He was diagnosed with the disease last week and flown to the same Nebraska facility that treated other U.S. Ebola patients successfully.
