Medical officials in Western Africa have confirmed that a French doctor has been struck by ebola and she's expected to return to her home country soon.
The BBC News reports that, "A French aid worker from the medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) has contracted the Ebola virus in Liberia, reports say. It follows a warning by the World Bank that the epidemic is threatening economic disaster across West Africa."
France has assigned over 2,000 aid workers to the ebola-stricken West Africa region.
According to the BBC, "The woman is being repatriated to the French capital Paris under maximum security. Ebola has killed 2,461 people in West Africa - the largest ever outbreak."
President Barry Obama will soon deploy over 3,000 military personnel to the region as well.
