Another American Ebola patient has landed in Atlanta to receive treatment at Emory University Hospital.

The patient, whose name has not been released, is a health care worker with the World Health Organization and is the fourth American known to have contracted the virus in an outbreak that has killed at least 2,296 people and sickened 1,997 more, according to the latest data from the World health Organization.

The patient was evacuated from Sierra Leone via air ambulance to receive treatment where two other American Ebola survivors — Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol — received supportive care and were later declared virus-free.
