The Ebola outbreak has been in the news everyday and the news doesn’t seem to be getting any better. Emory University Hospital released a news release saying that an infected patient will be placed under their care from Africa in the next few days.

Hospital officials said that the patient hasn’t been identified and they do not know the exact arrival date. The health care facility has a “specially built isolation unit,” which was set up with the help of  the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The unit, called an Aeromedical Biological Containment System, is equipped to provide medical treatment for those who have been exposed to “serious infectious diseases.”

According to CNN, a plane left Cartersville, Ga. Thursday evening to remove two American charity workers in Liberia who were infected with Ebola.
