U.S. Doctor Stricken with Ebola Said to be Improving

(Reuters) – An American doctor stricken with the deadly Ebola virus while in Liberia and brought to the United States for treatment in a special isolation ward is improving, the top U.S. health official said on Sunday.

Dr Kent Brantly, a 33-year-old father of two young children, was able to walk, with help, from an ambulance after he was flown on Saturday to Atlanta, where he was being treated by infectious disease specialists at Emory University Hospital.

“It’s encouraging that he seems to be improving – that’s really important – and we’re hoping he’ll continue to improve,” Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation”.
