It is being reported that a U.S.-contracted medical charter flight left Cartersville, Georgia, Thursday, yesterday, to evacuate two American charity workers in Liberia infected with Ebola hemorrhagic fever. A CNN crew saw the airplane, a long-range business jet, depart shortly after 5 p.m. ET. The plane matched the description provided by the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
It has not been disclosed when the two Americans — identified as Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol — would arrive in the United States, or where the plane would land.
At least one of the two will be taken to a hospital at Emory University, near the headquarters of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, hospital officials told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
As I reported earlier today, In A NOVA Exclusive Reprot, Depopulation by the CDC Ebola Biological Warfare USA Department Of Defense (Video from NOVA) Stephen Becker Bio weapons virologist states growing evidence that the current Ebola outbreak is a covert biological warfare operation.
The news follows reports that an experimental serum was administered to Writebol. Only one dose of the serum was available, and Brantly asked that it be given to his colleague, said Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse.
With word of the experimental serum, there were more questions than answers: What is it? Why was there only one dose? And why was it only made available to the American charity workers?
Of those suspected cases, it is believed to have been fatal in at least 729 cases, according to the health organization.
It is believed to be the worst Ebola outbreak in history, and even in a best-case scenario, it could take three to six months to stem the epidemic in West Africa, Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, told reporters on Thursday.
