Ebola-stricken Dr. Kent Brantly arrived at Emory University Hospital on Saturday, the first known patient with the virus treated on U.S. soil.
A specially equipped medical plane brought Brantly from the African nation of Liberia to Georgia. He rode in a Grady ambulance from Dobbins Air Reserve Base to the Emory campus in Atlanta.
Emory will treat Brantly, 33, and eventually the other American infected with Ebola, fellow medical missionary Nancy Writebol, in a special isolation unit.
Brantly’s wife, Amber, said in a statement Saturday, “I spoke with him, and he is glad to be back in the U.S.”
