DAKAR Aug 2 A plane carrying one of two U.S.
aid workers infected with the deadly Ebola virus has left
Liberia for the United States, a spokesperson for the charity
Samaritan's Purse said on Saturday.
The plane was carrying Dr. Kent Brantly, the spokesperson
said, but could not provide a time for its arrival in the United
States. The second Samaritan's Purse staff member, missionary
Nancy Writebol, is due to be transported on a later flight, as
the plane is only equipped to carry one patient at a time.
The charity said on Friday the medical evacuations should be
completed by early next week.
