Dr. Kent Brantly (not shown) and Nancy Writebol (right) are serving on a joint team of people with Samaritan's Purse and SIM. Both faith-based organizations are calling for an international response to the outbreak of Ebola in Liberia and neighboring countries. A Phoenix air jet is en route to pick up the second American Ebola virus patient, a U.S. official told ABC News. The official said the private air ambulance left Sunday and will arrive in Liberia after one stopover. The plane will then bring Charlotte missionary Nancy Writebol to Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Ga. It is expected to land Tuesday afternoon. Dr. Kent Brantlyarrived in Georgia in the same plane on Saturday and is undergoing treatment at Emory University Hospital. Writebol will also be treated at that same hospital after she arrives in the U.S., according to authorities. Officials said they will be treated in an isolation unit. There, physicians say they have a better chance to steer them to health while ensuring the virus doesnt spread the last point nodding to public fears, notably expressed on social media, that the disease could get a U.S. foothold. The plane, also equipped with a unit meant to isolate the patient, was able to take only one patient at a time. Brantlys wife, parents and sister cried when they saw him on CNN, walking from the ambulance into the hospital.
