MONROVIA, LIBERIA – A Texas doctor at the center of the Ebola crisis in Liberia is now infected with the deadly virus.
33-year-old Kent Brantly, of Fort Worth, moved to West Africa with his wife and kids to help treat highly contagious Ebola patients.
Sadly, he’s now the one in need of treatment.
Brantly, who has been in Liberia since last October, was working with a medical charity.
He started feeling sick last week and unfortunately, tested positive for the highly contagious disease.
Brantly is being treated at an isolation center.
So far, Ebola, one of the world’s deadliest viruses, has killed more than 670 people this year and has spread to at least four African countries.
The Ebola virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads through human contact. 90 percent of those who get the virus will die.
Here’s 100 percent support for the good Samaritan doctor.
