American nurse with Ebola to leave Liberia Tuesday

MONROVIA, Liberia (AP) — Liberian officials say an American woman sick with Ebola soon will leave the West African country and arrive in the United States early Tuesday. Nancy Writebol, a missionary nurse who had been treating Ebola patients while working in a Liberian hospital, will be the second American repatriated with Ebola. American doctor Kent Brantly is undergoing treatment in Atlanta, after arriving at Emory University Hospital on Saturday. Liberian Information Minister Lewis Brown said the second evacuation plane is expected to leave West Africa between at 1 a.m. and 1.30 a.m. on Tuesday. There is no cure for the Ebola virus, which causes hemorrhagic fever that kills at least 60 percent of the people it infects in Africa. At least 729 people have died in West Africa this year.
