Via ABC News: Ebola-Stricken American Doctor Has Taken 'Turn for the Worse'. Excerpt:
An American doctor being treated for Ebola in Liberia has “taken a slight turn for the worse overnight,” according to Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical Christian Charity based in North Carolina.
An "experimental serum" to treat the virus arrived for the two infected Americans, but there was only enough for one person, according to Samaritan’s Purse.
Dr. Kent Brantly, who noticed his Ebola symptoms and quarantined himself last week, offered the dose to the other infected American, Dr. Nancy Writebol.
Both Brantly and Writebol remain in “stable, but grave condition” according to the statement.
“However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola because of Dr. Brantly’s care,” Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, said in a statement. The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor that saved his life.”
