U.S. missionary with Ebola to leave Liberia
ATLANTA (AP) -- A second American missionary stricken with Ebola is expected to fly Tuesday to the U.S. for treatment, following a colleague who was admitted over the weekend to the infectious disease unit at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital.
A Liberian official says Nancy Writebol is scheduled to depart West Africa early Tuesday with a medical evacuation team.
The pastor of her church in Charlotte, North Carolina, who has spoken with her husband, David, says Writebol is in good spirits despite her diagnosis.
The Rev. John Munro says "She is holding her own."
Munro's Calvary Church sponsors the Writebols as missionaries in Liberia, one of the West African nations grappling with the worst outbreak of Ebola ever recorded there.
Meanwhile, the wife of Writebol's mission team partner, Dr. Kent Brantly, says he's improving after being admitted to Emory's quarantine unit on Saturday.
