The second American aid worker diagnosed with Ebola in west Africa was brought back to the United States for treatment Tuesday, U.S. media reported.

Nancy Writebol arrived in a private plane equipped with a unique containment unit at Dobbins Air Force Base near Atlanta Tuesday morning. She will join colleague Dr. Kent Brantly in a special isolation unit at Atlanta's Emory University Hospital.

SIM, the aid group with which Writebol serves, said she " remains in serious, but stable, condition."

Writebol was serving on a joint team in Liberia with Brantly of Samaritan's Purse, an international relief organization, when they both contracted the virus.

Brantly was brought back by the same medical evacuation plane on Aug. 2 for treatment.

According to Samaritan's Purse, Brantly is "in good spirits" and his condition "is improving."
