(ATLANTA) — The plane carrying the second American patient who contracted Ebola while working in Liberia will leave the U.S. for the West African country Sunday, a U.S. official told ABC News.
The private air ambulance is scheduled to take off on Sunday and arrive in Liberia after one stopover, the official said. The plane will then bring aid worker Nancy Writebol to Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Marietta, Ga., and is expected to land midday Tuesday.
The same plane brought Dr. Kent Brantly to Georgia on Saturday. He’s undergoing treatment at Emory University Hospital, where Writebol will be treated after she arrives in the U.S.
