    NEW YORK (AP) — Plans are underway to bring back the two American aid workers sick with Ebola from Africa.

    A small private jet based in Atlanta has been dispatched to Liberia where the two Americans work for missionary groups. Officials say the jet is outfitted with a special, portable tent designed for transporting patients with highly infectious diseases.

    The plane can only carry one patient at a time. Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital says it expects one patient to be transferred there “within the next several days.” The hospital has a special isolation unit.

    The two Americans are Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol. Both worked at a hospital that treats Ebola patients.

    The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 700 people.
