American doctor infected

27 Jul, 2014

Brantly¬†diagnoses himself with Ebola virus while working with Ebola patients in Liberia. Brantly has body aches, pains and fever but is in a stable condition, says Ken Isaacs of North Carolina Samaritan’s Purse:

[The doctor] is not out of the woods yet, but we remain optimistic that he will survive.

The disease has killed at least 672 people in four West African countries since the outbreak began earlier this year in Guinea and spread to Liberia and Sierra Leone.
