ATLANTA, Ga. -- Now that Dr. Kent Brantly has arrived at Emory University Hospital, a team of Doctors and Nurses will work around the clock in a special isolation room to treat the side-effects of the Ebola Virus.
That room is one of only four in the country and part of the reason why Dr. Brantly was brought to Atlanta.
The room was created 12 years ago. It's essentially a mini-hospital, complete with a lab and anything else the medical team will need.
"I can't think of a better place in the world, other than Emory University Hospital to care for this patient," said Dr. Jay Varkey with the Infectious Disease Unit at Emory Hospital.
Word spread last week that the two American citizens infected with the deadly Ebola virus would be coming to Emory University Hospital. But as Dr. Varkey puts it, the team has been training for years.
