An American doctor who selflessly traveled to Africa in order to stop the spread of Ebola has now tested positive for the disease himself.

Kent Brantly, a 33-year-old father of two, noticed the signs and symptoms of the incurable disease in his own body and immediately quarantined himself. He told the parishoners of his church that he believes his faith will be what saves him now.

Brantly professed:

"God's going to deliver me from this but even if he doesn't I have lived my life for him and I have no regrets.”

Christian missionary Nancy Writebol has also tested positive for Ebola while working in a Liberian hospital. She and her husband David traveled to the area specifically to help those in need. Now Nancy is fighting for own her life.

700 people have died in this latest outbreak, with cases reported in Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and now Nigeria. Health officials continue to scramble to stop the disease from spreading further but new fears are arising due to weak inspection practices at many African nation airports.

All ports of entry in Nigeria are now on red alert and all people who have come in contact with the dead and being examined by medical teams.

We sincerely hope the spread of this tragic disease is stopped soon!

    I don't think it's brave, I think it's crazy! These countries need to learn to handle outbreaks on their own. Having Americans go over there and risk bringing it back here or worse dying from it is not brave. 1 in 5 children go to bed hungry. Our streets are filled with homeless, mentally sick and physically ill people, we have overfilled jails and issues with terrorism etc… You want to be a humanitarian, then help your own country first. Going to another country and leaving your children here is Selfish, not selfless.
