First U.S. Ebola Patient Arrives in U.S. Hospital

A Fort Worth, Texas, physician who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia arrived Saturday afternoon at a Georgia hospital where he will receive treatment for the deadly virus, NBC News reported. Dr. Kent Brantly was flown on a specially outfitted plane and was immediately transported from Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, Georgia, to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, according to the Christian charity organization Samaritan's Purse. Brantly's wife, Amber, was able to see and hear her husband through a glass barricade in the isolation unit Saturday. The State Department is also working to evacuate missionary Nancy Writebol, a second American stricken with the deadly disease.
