Family of American with Ebola claim to be healthy

The family of a Texas-trained doctor who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia has shown no symptoms of the deadly disease.

Dr. Kent Brantly is in the isolation ward of a hospital where he had been treating Ebola patients on behalf of the Christian aid group Samaritan's Purse. His wife Amber and 3- and 5-year-old children left Liberia days before Brantly quarantined himself after testing positive for Ebola, raising fears they may have been infected.

Amber Brantly says in a statement Thursday that she and the children are "physically fine."

American volunteer Nancy Writebol is also battling Ebola in Liberia.

Officials at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital said Thursday they expect one of the Americans to be transferred there "within the next several days."

Amber Brantly didn't mention a possible evacuation.   http://www.cdc.gov/vhf/ebola/outbreaks/guinea/index.html?s_cid=cdc_homepage_whatsnew_001
