MADRID — A medical worker that treated a Spanish priest who died on Sept. 28, after being infected with Ebola, has now tested positive for the virus, reports the BBC.

The medical worker, a nurse, was admitted Monday morning to the hospital after suffering from a high fever.

This marks the first medical worker outside of Africa to contract the deadly virus which has about a 90% kill rate if left untreated, 60% if treated.
