US Doctor With Ebola Arrives In Atlanta by markpenk: 5:38pm On Aug 02, 2014
NEW YORK (AP) — An Air Force spokesman says a patient infected with Ebola in Africa has arrived at a military air base outside Atlanta and is being brought to a hospital in the city.

Dobbins Air Reserve Base spokesman Lt. Col. James Wilson says the first of two Americans who worked for missionary groups arrived on a flight that landed Saturday.

Samaritan's Purse missionary group tells The Associated Press that Dr. Kent Brantly was on the plane.

He worked at a hospital in Liberia that treats Ebola patients.

He and another aid worker will be treated at a special isolation unit at Emory University Hospital.

A private jet is being used that is outfitted with a special, portable tent designed to transport patients with highly infectious diseases.

N.B: If only naija could do this same thing. We could learn a lot from the americans.
