Sorry, but Dr. Kent Brantly lost his right to privacy when he came back home to the United States for treatment.

He is infected with the live Ebola virus and as such, a risk to all.

Yes, Emory University Hospital is equipped to handle level 4 viruses and it appears that Brantly is making improvements.

I understand that other doctors treating Ebola patients thought they were using the proper precautions, but are now infected. What’s to say that it can’t happen again?

We as a nation have a right to know what is happening at Emory, whomever is being treated for an incurable disease, privacy notwithstanding.
