The deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa has infected a third American missionary. The North Carolina-based missionary group "Serving In Mission" says the doctor is a male obstetrician who did not work in an Ebola ward. He is being treated in an isolation unit and is said to be doing well and in good spirits. No word yet on if the doctor will be evacuated from Liberia. Two other American missionaries who survived the Ebola virus were given the experimental drug Z-Mapp. But the company that manufactures the drug says the supply has been exhausted. Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol were released from Emory University Hospital last month after they were transported there from Liberia.
