A US doctor battling the deadly Ebola virus gave the only dose of an experimental serum used to treat the disease to his colleague, according to the relief group they were both working for in Liberia.
Dr Kent Brantly who had been working to treat the disease took "a turn for the worse" said Franklin Graham, the president of the Samaritan’s Purse charity.
But rather than try the experimental serum he opted to let his colleague Nancy Writebol try it instead.
Graham said: "There was only enough for one person. Dr. Brantly asked that it be given to Nancy Writebol. However, Dr. Brantly received a unit of blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola because of Dr. Brantly’s care.
He added: "The young boy and his family wanted to be able to help the doctor that saved his life.”
