UK Nurse to Help US Man With Ebola     09/18 06:13

   LONDON (AP) -- Britain's Foreign Office says a nurse who recovered from 
Ebola has traveled to the U.S. to donate blood to an American patient who is 
fighting the disease.

   William Pooley caught Ebola while working in Sierra Leone and was flown back 
to London for treatment, where he recovered. The American patient who received 
Pooley's blood wasn't identified.

   Scientists think antibodies in the blood of people who have survived Ebola 
might help others infected with the disease. The Foreign Office said it 
arranged for Pooley to get an emergency passport. His original passport had 
been burned.

   "This enabled him to fly out to the U.S. immediately and potentially assist 
with the treatment of an Ebola victim," the office said in a statement. 
Pooley's trip was paid for by the World Health Organization.
