An American doctor in serious condition after he contracted Ebola was on a specially-outfitted plane from Liberia this morning that landed just moments ago in Georgia,  the organization Samaritan’s Purse told NBC News.

Dr. Kent Brantly – the first person infected with Ebola to be transported to the U.S. – landed at Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, Georgia, and is being transported from there to Emory Hospital in Atlanta to the U.S. for treatment.

Emory has prepared a special isolation unit with the help of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and said they are prepared to care for Brantly.

The State Department also is working to evacuate missionary Nancy Writebol - the second American stricken with the disease – out of Liberia.
