Ebola continues to spread in West Africa

The World Health Organization is reporting 887 deaths from the worst outbreak of the Ebola virus in history.

Emory University Hospital in Atlanta is expecting her to arrive on Tuesday. Kent Brantly, a doctor on her team is also being treated there. --Thea Breite (14 photos total)
