A third Ebola patient will be coming to the Midwest for treatment.

Doctor Martin Salia, age 44, will be flown to Omaha, Nebraska as early as Saturday afternoon.

Two other patients were treated at Omaha's Biocontainment Unit. Both have been released.

Doctor Salia is a Sierra Leone citizen who legally lives in Maryland. He tested positive for Ebola last Monday.

Salia is the tenth patient in the U.S. to be treated for Ebola.
