Dr. Kent Brantly contracted Ebola while working as a missionary in Liberia and he is one of the few success stories of this crisis. Dr. Brantly was the first Ebola patient to arrive in the U.S. After doctors in Atlanta helped him recover from the disease, he has become an advocate for those still battling Ebola. Dr. Brantly has donated plasma to three other patients. He spoke to Anderson about the importance of fighting the spread of Ebola in West Africa, but warns "the answer is not simply closing the borders."
