WASHINGTON (AP) β€” The National Institutes of Health is preparing to care for an American doctor who was exposed to the Ebola virus while volunteering in Sierra Leone.

Out of what the agency called “an abundance of caution,” the physician is expected to be admitted to the special isolation unit at the NIH’s hospital near the nation’s capital as early as Sunday, for observation.

NIH infectious disease chief Dr. Anthony Fauci wouldn’t discuss details about the patient but said that in general, an exposure to Ebola doesn’t necessarily mean someone will become sick.
