A UN employee infected with Ebola has died at a hospital in Germany.
Doctors at the hospital in Leipzig said the man, 56, died in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The outbreak has killed more than 4,000 people since March – mostly in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria.
The World Health Organization described it as the “the most severe, acute health emergency seen in modern times”. The US and UK are among countries to have introduced scanning at airports.
The man had been working as a UN medical official in Liberia – one of the worst affected countries by the outbreak – when he caught Ebola.
