CUBA STANDARD — A Cuban doctor who contracted Ebola will be transferred for treatment in Switzerland, the Cuban health ministry said in a statement published by official media.

In the biggest commitment of personnel of any nation, Cuba has sent 165 medics to West Africa — most of them in Sierra Leone — and plans for a total deployment of 463; thousands more Cubans have volunteered, according to Cuban officials.
