Ebola Patient Arrives in Atlanta



(AP) - An American doctor infected with the Ebola virus in Africa has arrived in Atlanta for treatment.

The Samaritan's Purse missionary group tells The Associated Press that Dr. Kent Brantly is the patient who arrived at Dobbins Air Reserve Base near Atlanta aboard a specially outfitted private plane.

An ambulance from Atlanta's Grady Memorial Hospital left the base shortly after the jet landed and drove the 15 miles or so toward Emory University Hospital where Brantly and another aid worker will be treated.

Later, one person in protective clothing climbed down from the back of the ambulance and a second person in protective clothing appeared to take his gloved hands and guide him toward a building at Emory.
