|Reverend Miguel Pajares. May he rest in peace.|
Early this morning, while I was listening to Korean News, they announced that a 75 year old priest had died in a hospital in Madrid. He had tested positive for Ebola virus. Rev. Miguel Pajares had been in Liberia until he was evacuated home to Spain. When he became ill, he was housed in a specialized isolation unit of King Carlos III Hospital in Madrid. Although it had been planned to administer Z-Mapp, the experimental treatment for Ebola, the hospital has not yet said whether the reverend received it before his death or not. Reverend Pajares died early this morning of respiratory failure, the result of Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever. His remains have been cremated as a strategy in order to contain the virus.
We send condolences to the family of Reverend Pajares.
