US Ebola victim arrives at Emory University hospital in Atlanta:

One of two two US victims of the West African Ebola outbreak, Dr. Kent Brantly arrived in the country on Saturday and was transferred to an Atlanta hospital with one of the most sophisticated isolation units in the country.

He was flown by specially adapted private jet to Dobbins Air Force Base in Marietta, Georgia, just outside Atlanta. He was said to have contracted the disease while working for a charity in Liberia.

The other victim is to be carried on a latter flight as the plane is equipped to carry one patient at a time.

Doctors beyond borders fear that the deadly Ebola virus disease may be out of control.
