ATLANTA, Ga. - A second plane is on its way to Africa to bring another American missionary infected with Ebola back to the U.S.

Over the weekend, the first American Ebola patient arrived in the U.S. to begin treatment.

Dr. Kent Brantly, a medical missionary who contracted the virus working in Africa, arrived in Atlanta Saturday.

He was taken to Emory University Hospital.

Samaritan's Purse, the Christian charity that employs Brantly, says he seems to be improving.

Brantly, 33,  received an experimental drug while he was quarantined in Africa.

CNN reports a video shows a person, who is believed to be Brantly,  in a white full-body protective suit getting out of the ambulance and walking into the hospital.

The second patient, Nancy Writebol, is expected to arrive later this week.
