US doctor with Ebola says he is getting stronger

ATLANTA (AP) — An American doctor infected with Ebola says he's getting stronger every day. Dr. Kent Brantly put out a statement Friday through Samaritan's Purse, the aid organization he was working with in Liberia. He and another aid worker, Nancy Writebol, are being treated in an isolation unit at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Writebol's husband, David, who remains in Liberia, told reporters Friday in a call organized by aid group SIM USA his wife appears to be improving. Few details have been released about the specific conditions of the patients. The aid groups referred questions to Emory, which has declined comment, citing patient privacy. David Writebol said since his wife arrived in Atlanta, she has received another dose of a treatment that's still in development and hasn't been tested in humans.
