TLANTA (AP) — The second American aid worker recently diagnosed with Ebola in west Africa is en route to Atlanta.

A chartered plane equipped to contain infectious diseases took off at 1:12 a.m. local time (9:12 p.m. EDT Monday) from Monrovia, Liberia. An Associated Press reporter saw the four-vehicle convoy arrive at the airport.

Although hospital officials haven’t released the patient’s identity, the aid group she was working with has identified her as 59-year-old Nancy Writebol. SIM said in a statement Tuesday morning that Writebol remains in serious but stable condition.

An official at Bangor International Airport in Maine says the plane landed there Tuesday morning to refuel and undergo a federal customs inspection before heading to Atlanta.

Writebol will be treated at an isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Dr. Kent Brantly was taken there Saturday.

  1. I’m sorry for anyone that contracts any type of illness,but what gets me is why when these people go from their own country and when get sick or contract some kind of disease then wants to bring it back into the U.S. work at home and take care of your sick here first before trying to heal others healing begins at home! when you learn the method of caring for your own first then you can help maybe if they had study more here of what to do and what kind of medicine might had aided in the healing process they might not got effected my opinion,whenever someone gets ill from an terminal disease they caught them wham bring it back home! again people wake up think first before you think your helping remember AIDS is still here someone brought that into the country too!!
