ATLANTA, Ga. (CNN) — A specially-outfitted plane left Georgia on Sunday headed for Liberia. The crew will bring back American Ebola patient Nancy Writebol. When she arrives on Tuesday, she’ll be rushed to a special unit inside an Atlanta hospital near the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Also being treated there is Dr. Kent Brantly, who arrived on Saturday. Doctors say his condition is improving. He was given an experimental serum before leaving Liberia. Doctors at Emory Hospital will watch his symptoms and keep him stable until his body can hopefully control the infection.

“They’ll watch him for 21-days,” says Dr. Stephen Morse of Columbia University. He adds, “if his condition doesn’t change, and hopefully the fever will start going down before then, and I think he’ll be out of the woods by that point.”

Doctors, like Dr. Jack Kearse from Emory, say bringing these stricken patients back to the United States was the best course of action, “Most of the medical care is supportive care, and our sense, based on speaking to providers in that part of the world, given our training, given our knowledge, given our unit, we can supply that supportive care much better than can be supplied in their current environment.”

The Ebola outbreak has taken more than 700-lives in West Africa, and experts say it could be up to six-months before it’s under control.
