10 US charity staff to be brought back from Sierra Leone due to Ebola

The NGO that has been recognized as Partners in Health released a statement claiming that at least 10 clinicians associated with it are set to be transported on non-commercial. The NGO further said in the statement that all the ten of them will be quarantined in Ebola treatment facilities.
