The second of two Americans stricken with Ebola in the West African nation of Liberia will arrive in the United States on Tuesday to begin treatment, according to media reports.

Nancy Writebol, 59, is expected to land in Atlanta aboard a plane specially equipped with an isolation unit, CNN said. Upon arrival, she will be taken to Emory University Hospital where the other American Ebola patient, Dr. Kent Brantly, is currently receiving care.

Brantly, 33, was delivered Saturday morning to Emory for treatment and is showing signs of improvement, experts said.
