Two Americans battling Ebola will be flown from Liberia to Atlanta in specially outfitted planes - bringing the incurable disease to U.S. shores for the first time, it has been reported.

Dr Kent Brantly and hygienist Nancy Writebol, both of whom are said to be in 'grave condition', will be brought back to the U.S. one by one, sources told ABC News.

Emory University in Atlanta will take both of the patients after they arrive in the Gulfstream jet - with one arriving 'in the coming days' and the second arriving afterwards, the channel tweeted.

Emory and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is also based in Atlanta, have built a special containment unit to house the patient, who is in need of an extremely high level of isolation.


Why is the government bringing people with an incurable and infectious African disease to America?

Because they are American citizens?

I would rather be treated in the West than back in Africa.
