The first American Ebola patient, Dr. Kent Brantly, has arrived at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta where he will be treated in highly specialized units.
And here’s a video of the obviously weak doctor walking into the hospital (below). Brantly’s wife, parents and sister cried when they saw him on CNN, walking from the ambulance into the hospital, a family representative said on condition of anonymity. His wife, Amber, later said she was relieved that her husband was back in the United States.
“I spoke with him, and he is glad to be back in the U.S.,” she said in statement sent to CNN.
“I am thankful to God for his safe transport and for giving him the strength to walk into the hospital.”
Brantly’s wife has visited her husband at the hospital and interacted with him from behind a glass wall for about 45 minutes, the family representative said. Kent Brantly was described as being “in great spirits and so grateful.”
