Nebraska Medical Center looked after three patients with Ebola who were brought back to the United States for care during the West African Ebola outbreak in 2014 and 2015. Monitoring could last up to two weeks.

Taylor Wilson, a spokesman for the University of Nebraska Medical Center, said the potential exposure took place about a week ago.

If indications of Ebola are seen, the individual will be admitted and the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit will be activated.

"This person may have been exposed to the virus but is not ill and is not contagious", Ted Cieslak, an infectious diseases specialist at the center, said.

This isn't the first time possible Ebola patients were treated at the Nebraska Medical Center.

Nebraska Medical Center officials said that the physician was transported to the facility from the Congo by private plane and vehicle. A spokesperson for the State Department, which arranged the doctor's travel, said the doctor was moved safely and securely. Attacks on government outposts and civilians by dozens of armed militias have complicated the work of Ebola response teams, who often have had to suspend crucial work tracking cases and isolating people infected with the deadly virus.

The person isn't displaying symptoms of Ebola but was evacuated to ensure quick access to specialized care if symptoms develop. Early symptoms include headache, fever, chills and muscle pain.

An American who may have been exposed to Ebola while working in the Democratic Republic of Congo has returned to the United States for monitoring.

The virus spreads through contact with bodily fluids and causes haemorrhagic fever with severe vomiting, diarrhoea and bleeding.

The person will be monitored for up to two weeks at the Nebraska Medical Center, which has handled Ebola patients before.

Should any symptoms develop, the medical center will activate the Nebraska Biocontainment Unit and start providing regular updates.

Nebraska Medicine treated three patients with Ebola in 2014.
