Unnamed Patient Does Not Exhibit Symptoms The doctor, who was not identified for privacy reason, does not exhibit symptoms of the hemorrhagic virus.
Nebraska Medicine treated three patients with Ebola during the epidemic that ravaged Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea from 2014 to 2016.
The UNMC, located in Omaha, the largest city in the state of Nebraska, said the individual has now no Ebola symptoms but will be monitored, according to a press release from the college, Xinhua news agency reported.
The American was among hundreds of health-care personnel who have been responding to a growing Ebola outbreak in Congo, the second largest in history, with almost 600 cases and 360 deaths.
If indications of Ebola are seen, the individual will be admitted and the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit will be activated. Nebraska Medical Center is one of a handful of places in the United States that has a dedicated biocontainment unit.
According to the hospital, the doctor was flown by private plane and then taken by vehicle.
The disease caused by Ebola virus - an acute viral infection that affects humans and some animals.
The Ebola outbreak in Democratic Republic of Congo is the second worst ever and has killed 356 of the 585 people infected since it began six months ago. Working with federal, state and county public health officials, they will be monitored in a secure area not accessible by the public or any patients.
Symptoms such as fever and abdominal pain may appear up to three weeks after contact with the potentially deadly virus, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Observation of the individual could last as long as two weeks and is being done in a location that neither the public nor patients can access, the facility said. It can also spread through objects contaminated with body fluids from a sick or dead person. In 2015, several others were monitored after exposure, but none of them developed the disease.
