By Rich McKay ATLANTA (Reuters) - The second American aid worker who contracted the deadly Ebola virus while helping fight the disease in West Africa is expected to arrive in Atlanta on Tuesday, a relief organization said. Missionary Nancy Writebol, 59, will fly on a medical aircraft from Liberia to Atlanta to be treated by infectious disease specialists in a special isolation ward at Emory University Hospital, according to Christian mission group SIM USA. The specialists on Saturday began treating 33-year-old American doctor Kent Brantly, who also returned home after being stricken with Ebola during the emergency response to the worst outbreak on record of the hemorrhagic virus, which has killed more than 700 people since February. Writebol and Brantly, who served on a joint team run by Christian aid groups SIM USA and Samaritan's Purse, are believed to be the first Ebola patients ever treated in the United States.

Mayor of Toledo, Ohio, lifts ban on drinking tap water

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 00:11

Local residents wait in line to receive drinking water outside Waite High School in ToledoBy George Tanber TOLEDO Ohio (Reuters) - A ban on drinking tap water in Toledo was lifted early Monday after tests showed that toxins were no longer at dangerous levels from algae on Lake Erie, the mayor's office said. "Our water is safe," Mayor Michael Collins said at a Monday news conference announcing the latest results from city tests. Some 400,000 residents had been told not to drink the water in the Toledo area on Saturday after health officials found the lake, which supplies most of the area's drinking water, may have been affected by a harmful algal bloom. Tests run Sunday by the state and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency indicated toxin levels in the water were clean or acceptable but Collins was waiting for city tests to confirm those results before lifting the ban, he said.
