Hospital says Spanish priest with Ebola dies

– A spokeswoman for a Madrid hospital says a Spanish missionary priest who was evacuated from Liberia last week after testing positive for Ebola has died.

The spokeswoman said Miguel Pajares, 75, died Tuesday at Carlos III Hospital, where he was being treated.

Spain’s Health Ministry said Monday it had obtained a course of the U.S.-made experimental drug ZMapp over the weekend to treat the priest. The Madrid hospital on Tuesday would not confirm that he had been treated with the drug, but his order said earlier he would be.

The hospital official spoke on condition of anonymity because the hospital’s rules prevent staff from being identified.
