Two American aid workers infected with the deadly Ebola virus in Liberia will stand a better chance of recovery once back in the US, a doctor has said.

Dr Bruce Ribner of Emory University Hospital, where the patients will be treated, told reporters that his ward would allow better support for patients than emergency facilities in Africa.

The worst outbreak of Ebola in history has swept through four countries in West Africa, killing over 700 people.
