A North Carolina-based missionary aid group is sending 90 tons of supplies to West Africa to help fight an Ebola outbreak that has killed thousands of people.
A U.S. doctor who survived after contracting Ebola while doing missionary work in Liberia is “very close” to the doctor most recently diagnosed with the disease and has spent time in “tearful prayer” for him, according to an interview with NBC News aired Tuesday.
Two American aid workers have tested positive for the Ebola virus while working to combat an outbreak of the deadly disease at a hospital in Liberia, a relief group official said.
A spokeswoman for an aid organization says an American doctor is receiving intensive medical treatment in Africa after he was infected with the deadly Ebola virus.
