    (CNN) -- A doctor who spent time treating Ebola patients in West Africa died from the virus Monday in Nebraska. The death of Dr. Martin Salia, who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, marks the second time Ebola has claimed a victim in the United States.

    "It was an absolute honor to care for Dr. Salia," said Nebraska Medical Center Chief Nursing Officer Rosanna Morris at a news conference in Omaha.

    She sat alongside four other doctors who said they did everything possible to try to save the surgeon. Salia traveled between Sierra Leone where he contracted the virus, and his home in Maryland where his children and wife live.

    Morris said that caring for Salia has taught the Nebraska team a lot. Spending time with Salia's wife, Isatu Salia, shed light on how anguishing it is to have a loved one suffer from Ebola, Morris said.

    Believe me (here in the land of the CDC) that to be able to get tissue and cell samples from a living/once living Ebola patient here will be a tremendous help for our researchers. The treatments we have provided will more than pay for themselves.

    We are STILL using Henrietta Lacks cells from the 50s ("HeLa cells")

    How soon until the cries of racism ring out because black patients aren't living through it here?

    ABC News reported a private air ambulance may cost upward of $100,000.

    A woman is going to refund the US government for the medical evacuation of her husband, a surgeon who contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone.

    The travel costs and care of other Ebola patients flown to the U.S. have been covered by the groups they worked for in West Africa.
