Dr. Martin Salia, 44, who arrived Saturday from West Africa in dire health, was pronounced dead Monday morning from the virus. He reportedly tested negative for the virus despite having been in the throes of infection.
The Washington Post reported the following:
Salia was treated with the blood of an Ebola survivor as well as the experimental treatment ZMapp, which was initiated on Saturday, the hospital said. When he arrived in Nebraska on Saturday, he was already suffering from kidney and respiratory failure. He died at about 4 a.m. local time, according to the hospital.
