Alabama Nurse Defense Lawyer – Board of Nursing Alabama Matter Pending? We Can Help – Second American aid worker with Ebola arrives in Atlanta – (866) 348-2889
The number of reported cases from the Ebola virus disease outbreak has risen to 1,603, with 887 deaths, according to an Aug. 4 update by the World Health Organization. This news comes the same day Nancy Writebol, 59, the second American medical missionary stricken with Ebola virus in Liberia, arrived in Atlanta, where she was transported to Emory University Hospital.
Last week, both Writebol and Kent Brantley, 33, the American doctor who also contracted Ebola in Liberia and is receiving treatment at Emory, were given the experimental drug known as ZMapp while still in Liberia. The drug had never been tried before in a human being but had shown promise in small experiments with monkeys, according to a CNN article.
