Doctor’s condition improving

11 Sep, 2014

Dr. Rick Sacra is recovering after receiving a blood transfusion. According to his physicians he is doing very well. The blood came from Kent Brantly, another doctor who had been infected. Blood from a previously infected patient contains antibodies against the virus. Sacra’s wife is very pleased that Brantly was willing to donate blood:

It really meant a lot to us that he was willing to give that donation so soon after his own recovery.
