Ebola Patients Have Reason To Be Hopeful

(Atlanta, GA) -- The only known Ebola patients in the United States have a good shot at survival. Nancy Writebol and Doctor Kent Brantly are both receiving care in isolation in Atlanta after being flown separately from West Africa. They are the first humans being treated with an experimental serum called Zmapp. That drug could be the key to survival for Brantly and Writebol, who are both in stable condition today.
The worst Ebola outbreak on record has killed nearly 900 people in West Africa. The fatality rate is as high as 90-percent.
