U.S. Ebola Patient Given Experimental Serum

Kent Brantly, the Texas doctor who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia, was given an experimental serum before he was flown to the U.S., said Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian aid group. Dr. Thomas Frieden, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said he doesn’t know what treatment the group gave Brantly. Frieden also said Sunday that Brantly appears to be improving, less than 24 hours after he was admitted to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment. Brantly’s wife said he is in good spirits.
