Ebola doctor preps for patients

Atlanta - A doctor who'll be on the front line of care when the first of two Americans fighting Ebola virus infection arrives in Atlanta on Saturday says he's not worried about catching the disease.

The patient will arrive at an Air Force Base near Atlanta Saturday aboard a specially outfitted private jet, then be moved to a high-security isolation unit at nearby Emory University medical school.

Although Ebola is deadly and virulent - it's killed more than 700 people out of more than 1,300 infected in the current outbreak - staff at Emory are confident they can care for both patients safely.
