MONROVIA (Worthy News)-- Another American doctor in Liberia has been infected with the Ebola virus, according to Sudan Interior Mission, an international organization with more than 1,600 active missionaries, including the latest infected physician.

The doctor -- whose name has not yet been released -- was was working in the obstetrics unit at SIM's Eternal Love Winning Africa Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia. He was treated at ELWA's isolation unit before being transferred to a hospital in Omaha, Neb.

Recently Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol -- a nurse who also was a SIM medical missionary -- were discharged from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after fully recovering from Ebola.

Health care workers are most at risk of contracting Ebola as the virus spreads through direct contact with infected patients.
