Dr Kent Branty arrived at the Emory University Hospital on Saturday after contracting the deadly virus in Liberia.

He was driven inside the grounds by a medical team who ensured he was kept in isolation the whole time.

As he got out the back of the vehicle, dressed in a white hazard suit, he had to be helped into the hospital.
