New York doctor with Ebola gets blood transfusion from aid worker who survived disease

Doctors treating New York City’s first Ebola patient have given the ailing doctor a transfusion of blood plasma from an aid worker who was infected with the deadly disease in West Africa and survived.

Dr. Craig Spencer received the donated plasma Friday from Nancy Writebol, a health care worker with the Christian organization SIM. Writebol was treated in August at Emory Hospital in Georgia.

“I am praying for Dr. Spencer’s recovery and am happy to be able to donate blood,” Writebol said, according to NBC News, which said SIM confirmed the donation Saturday.
