ATLANTA — 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 said he had no personal safety concerns over treating the patients of the dangerous disease.
Hospital officials did not identify the patients, citing confidentiality rules. They were previously identified as Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol.
Ribner oversees the isolation unit. He says one of the patients was expected to arrive Monday, while a second was expected several days later.
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 evacuated from Africa. Kirby did not have further details.
