"I think the fact this person was sent here to Nebraska Medicine for observation and potential care just really documents that we are one of the few places in the world that delivers this type of potential care", he said.

The doctor had been providing medical assistance at a missionary hospital in the central African country. One day after the positive test, the physician received the experimental Ebola vaccine as a post-exposure preventive measure.

Officials are keeping a close eye on the person to see if they develop symptoms of the contagious virus. If symptoms begin, the patient will be housed in the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit at the center, which was established to treat people who have serious, high-risk diseases. "A total of 360 died, 203 cured", - said in a statement.

According to a statement from the medical center, the doctor was transported to the facility by private plane and vehicle and is being monitored in a secure area that is not accessible to the public or any patients. On Thursday, people protesting the cancellation of voting in the presidential election attacked an Ebola treatment center in Beni, and patients there fled.

This isn't the first time patients exposed to Ebola were treated at the Nebraska Medical Center.

The Nebraska Medical Center says they're monitoring a person brought to them from the Congo who was on a humanitarian medical mission and was potentially exposed to Ebola. The center monitored several others in 2015 who never developed the disease.

Uganda has resumed Ebola screening for all arrivals from neighboring Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) after the border between the two countries re-opened on Monday. The World Health Organization has determined the outbreak does not pose a major global threat.
