An ambulance transporting Spanish nurse Teresa Romero arrives at the Carlos III Hospital in Madrid
NEW YORK – Another person who had close contact with the Spanish nurse infected with Ebola is under quarantine at a hospital in Madrid.
Six people already had been placed in isolation after having contact with the nurse, Teresa Romero. One patient has developed a fever, although none, except Romero, have been diagnosed with Ebola.
Romero contracted the deadly disease after attending to two missionaries who had worked in West Africa. Miguel Pajares, 75, died Aug. 12 after contracting Ebola in Liberia. Manuel Garcia Viejo, 69, died Sept. 25 after returning from Sierra Leone.
The president of the community of Madrid, Ignacio Gonzalez, told reporters Thursday that Romero’s health had deteriorated and she is in danger of dying.
