Miguel Pajares was transported to La Paz hospital in Madrid yesterday along with Juliana Bohi, an Equatorial Guinean nun with Spanish nationality.

Rafael Perez-Santamarina, director of Madrid’s La Paz hospital, said that initial medical checks on arrival at the center showed Pajares was in stable condition and Bohi was in good condition, according to the report.

Much like what the US did with the Samaritan’s Purse volunteers earlier this week, Pajares and Bohi were transported in a specially equipped aircraft. For more infectious disease news and information, visit and “like” the Infectious Disease News Facebook page
