2 Ebola Victims To Be Treated At Atlanta Hospital

ATLANTA (AP) — Two American aid workers infected with the Ebola virus in Africa will be treated at a specialized unit of an Atlanta hospital.

Dr. Bruce Ribner said Friday the patients will receive care at Emory University Hospital. Ribner oversees the isolation unit. He said he had no personal safety concerns over treating the patients of the disease.

Hospital officials did not identify the patients, citing confidentiality rules. They were previously identified as Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol.

Emory spokesman Vincent Dollard said the first patient was expected to arrive Saturday afternoon. It was not immediately clear when the second patient would arrive.

The Pentagon’s press secretary, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, said Friday that private-chartered aircraft will be arriving at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in metro Atlanta with the patients.
