Via NBC News: Ebola Patient Dr. Kent Brantly on Flight From Liberia to Atlanta. Click through for a video clip.
An American doctor in serious condition after he contracted Ebola was on a specially outfitted plane on the way to the U.S. for treatment Saturday morning, the organization Samaritan's Purse told NBC News. Dr. Kent Brantly — the first person infected with Ebola to be transported to the U.S. — will land at Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, Georgia, before he is transported to Emory Hospital in Atlanta.
Emory has prepared a special isolation unit with the help of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and said they are prepared to care for Brantly. The State Department is also working to evacuate missionary Nancy Writebol, a second American stricken with the deadly disease, out of Liberia.
I haven't seen any indication of who is funding these flights.
