An American aid worker who contracted the deadly Ebola virus but remained in Liberia while her colleague returned to the US for treatment will return home on Monday, according to the West African nation's information minister.
Nancy Writebol, a 59-year-old mother of two was forced to remain in Liberia, because a specially modified plane could only carry one person at a time.
Her colleague, Dr Kent Bradby flew home on Saturday and his condition is reportedly improving.
