(Reuters) – A U.S. healthcare worker who tested positive for Ebola while in Sierra Leone was in serious condition at a Maryland hospital, and a second American who may have been exposed to that patient was being flown back to the United States, U.S. health officials said on Friday.

The National Institutes of Health said the U.S. Ebola patient was flown into the United States earlier on Friday and admitted to the NIH’s high-security containment facility in Maryland. The patient is the 11th person with the deadly virus treated in the United States.

The NIH said the patient was in serious condition. The NIH did not release any more details.

The aid group Partners In Health said in a statement that the clinician was working for them in Sierra Leone, and noted their colleague “remains in good spirits.”
