ATLANTA - A medical evacuation team is set to fly the second of two known American Ebola victims back to the U.S. tomorrow.

Nancy Writebol will receive treatment at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital alongside Dr. Kent Brantly.

They contracted Ebola while treating victims of the virus in Liberia.

More than 1,300 people have been stricken in three West African countries and at least 729 have died.

The Liberian government says it will cremate all corpses of Ebola victims amid fears that the disease could be spread by burials near residential areas.
