Photos: Spanish Priest Struck With Ebola Becomes The First Person Brought To Europe For Treatment


EbolaArrival: Workers were carefully attired as the infected missionary arrived at the airstrip just outside Madrid

Miguel Parajes, 75 (bottom left) was repatriated on a military plane to Madrid from Liberia and carried by a convoy of medics in protective suits into the city’s Carlos III hospital (main picture) after he tested positive for the virus. His condition reportedly deteriorated overnight, when he was flown in an isolation chamber from Monrovia, Liberia, on a military plane, and he is now said to be unable to walk unaided. It comes as more distressing photos showed a man collapsed in a Guinea street surrounded by police (bottom right), who fearing he had the deadly virus, did not touch or move him for hours.
