Another Ebola patient is scheduled to arrive for treatment at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda today, WJZ reports. The patient is an American citizen who was volunteering at an Ebola treatment facility in Sierra Leone.

This person is the second to be treated for Ebola at NIH. The first was Dallas nurse Nine Pham, who was cured of the disease.

So far, we’ve treated 10 Ebola patients in the United States, eight of which have survived.

One who didn’t make it was surgeon Martin Salia, a New Carrollton resident who contracted the disease fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone. Doctors at Nebraska Medical Center, where he was treated, said he arrived too late to recover.
