  Ebola-stricken U.S. doctor said to be improving
The health condition of an American doctor Kent Brantly who contracted Ebola while treating infected patients in Liberia is said to be improving.
News that his health condition was improving came from the director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Tom Frieden who appeared on network TV shows on Sunday to quell public concerns of a potential outbreak, with the arrival of America's first known case of Ebola.
A fellow aid worker also sickened by the viral hemorrhagic fever, Nancy Writebol is set to return to the U.S. on the same medical plane on Tuesday.//
Meanwhile, the Ebola death toll has risen to 7-hundred-28 centered mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone with a lowered mortality rate of 55 percent.
The United States has announced it will send at least 50 public health experts within 30 days to West Africa to help fight the unprecedented outbreak of the virus, so far without a cure.
