Ebola Enters the United States

An experimental drug may have saved two missionaries battling the Ebola Virus, plus more global news. – Nicole Phillip

The Ebola virus entered the country for the first time as an American doctor becomes one of two infected persons to receive treatment in the United States. Dr. Kent Brantley will be treated in a separate unit of Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Experts don’t believe Ebola will be a threat to the country while the two patients undergo treatment. Though there is no cure, doctors can help provide the best situation for the body to naturally fight off the virus. The World Health Organization says the death toll from Ebola has grown from 729 to 887 in recent days. (Photo: AP Photo/JPS Health Network)
