U.S. racing to bring two Americans infected with Ebola home
The U.S. is working right now to bring home two Americans infected by the deadly Ebola virus. So far, the largest outbreak in history could be responsible for killing 729 people.
One plane left Cartersville, Georgia Thursday and was headed to Liberia, where the American victims — Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly – are fighting theviral infection. The medical charter will take at least one victim to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the plane would be equipped with an Aeromedical Biological Containment System (ABCS). The agency says the system is a “portable, tent-like device” that can be installed in a modified Gulfstream plane.
