Chief Medical Officer Dr Brima Kargbo said on Saturday that Dr Thomas Rogers died a day earlier of the disease. In all, 11 Sierra Leonean doctors have been infected.
Ebola has sickened more than 17,500 people, mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Of those, about 6,200 have died. The disease is currently spreading fastest in Sierra Leone.
Ebola is spread through the bodily fluids of people showing symptoms and people who have died of the disease. Because transmission requires close contact with those fluids, health workers are among the most at risk of contracting it and hundreds have become infected in this outbreak.
