A Swiss hospital says a Cuban doctor who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone is in a stable condition after nearly two days of treatment.

Felix Báez Sarria was flown to Geneva and was able to walk off the transport plane in a protective suit and mask after landing late Thursday night.

The Geneva University Hospital said Saturday that "today his health status is stable, although he remains in a serious medical condition." He is being treated in a special room in an area isolated from the rest of the hospital.
