The 2nd American aid worker infected with ebola in Liberia is back in the US for treatment.
A specially equipped Med-Evac plane carrying Nancy Writebol landed at Dobbins Air Reserve Base in Georgia Tuesday morning, after first stopping in Maine to refuel.  
Writebol will be driven to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment.
That's the same hospital that is treating the other American infected Doctor Kent Brantly.
They both contracted the disease while working with a Christian Mission group.
They were both given an experiential serum to treat the ebola virus, called Zmapp, which was produced in Owensboro, KY. 
Doctors have said that Dr. Brantly seemed to have “miraculous” response after his 1st dose of the medication.
Doctors have reported that Nancy Writebol started showing improvement after her 2nd dose.
