ATLANTA (AP) - The wife of an American doctor infected with Ebola in Africa says she is pleased her husband was able to walk out of an ambulance when he arrived at a hospital in Atlanta.

Dr. Kent Brantly became the first person infected with Ebola to be brought to the United States from Africa. He arrived Saturday at one of the nation's best hospitals for treatment in isolation unit. Fellow aid worker Nancy Writebol was expected to arrive in several days.

His wife, Amber Brantly, says she's spoken to her husband and he's glad to be back in the U.S. Family members aren't being allowed physical contact with him for now.
