Kansas Man’s Mother Fighting Ebola

KSAL StaffJuly 30, 2014

The son of a North Carolina-based missionary says his mother is fighting the Ebola virus while in isolation in Liberia.

Jeremy Writebol in Wichita, Kansas, told NBC’s “Today” show Wednesday he’s been able to talk with Nancy Writebol as she fights the illness.

He says his mother is able to move around the home where she’s in isolation and has been able to get plenty of fluids.

Jeremey Writebol says he’s concerned about his father, David Writebol, who was exposed before his wife learned of her condition. Jeremy Writebol said his father is feeling fine and is checking his temperature every six hours to monitor his condition.

The Writebols’ Charlotte, North Carolina, church plans a prayer service Wednesday night for her and Kent Brantly, another medical missionary fighting the disease.

Ebola is a severe, often fatal disease in humans and nonhuman primates. There is no known cure for it.
