Americans Infected with Ebola Come to U.S.
WEST AFRICA (CBS2/FOX28) - Two Americans infected with the deadly Ebola virus are flying back to the U.S. for treatment.
It will be the first time the disease will be brought into this country.
Meanwhile, African governments are evacuating volunteers and shutting down schools to try and stop the spread of the virus. Those governments are getting help from the World Health Organization; they have awarded 100 million dollars to help countries that are affected.
One of the American doctors suffering from the deadly infection was offered an experimental serum to help treat it, but there was only enough for one person.
He requested that the other infected American be given the serum instead.
That woman's family reports that she is doing "better."
So far, more than seven hundred people have died from the virus.
The CDC is still educating health care workers to spot and isolate any cases.
Currently there is no cure for the Ebola virus.
