LIBERIA -- An Ebola outbreak that has killed more than 670 people in Africa is now taking a toll on the doctors, healthcare workers and missionaries battling the deadly disease.

Samaritan's Purse spokeswoman, Melissa Strickland, tells WCNC Charlotte a missionary with SIM, a missionary group working in conjunction with Samaritan's Purse, is the second U.S. citizen working in Liberia to test positive for the Ebola virus. That missionary is Charlotte resident Nancy Writebol. According to SIM's website, Nancy and her husband David both serve the group in Liberia; David serves as the technical services manager at SIM's Radio ELWA complex, while Nancy serves as a personnel coordinator. The couple has two children.

SIM reports Nancy was working in Monrovia when she tested positive for the virus. She is currently undergoing treatment at the isolation center at ELWA.

An American doctor who has been working in Liberia since October 2013 for the Boone, North Carolina-based aid organization Samaritan's Purse is now receiving intensive medical treatment after he was infected with Ebola, according to a spokeswoman for the organization.

A government official in Liberia said Sunday that one of that country's highest-profile doctors has died in what the World Health Organization says is the largest recorded outbreak of the disease.

Not in the US. Two Americans contracted it, but they are quarantined in West Africa.
