They'll probably have a better chance of survival here. One received some serum of some Kind. An experimental treatment but there was only one dose.
It appears these two will be housed near the CDC in Atlanta. Don't worry these two aren't going to start an epidemic here in the US.
Two West African countries and the United Nations stepped up plans to fight the world's largest outbreak of Ebola in a bid to stem the disease's deadly spread, as the U.S. warned against nonessential travel to the region.
The World Health Organization on Thursday said it planned to launch a $100 million campaign with the help of member countries to bring under control an epidemic that it said has killed 729 people, mostly in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. The U.N. agency said several hundred more medical personnel were needed in the three countries.
Ernest Bai Koroma, the president of Sierra Leone, had hours earlier deployed the army to quarantine Ebola-stricken neighborhoods in his country and banned public meetings for at least 60 days, except those for education about the virus.

I am ok with this, bring back 2 people that volunteered to go into a hot zone and help people, then when the two got sick the doctor was offered the experimental treatment and he said give it to the nurse, then the doc got a transfusion from a boy that he had helped save.
Good people risking everything to help those in need, yes you bring them back,
Transmission to humans may occur through direct contact with blood or body fluids (e.g., saliva, and urine) of an infected person or animal or through contact with objects that have been contaminated with the blood or other body fluids of an infected person.
Provide the sick passenger with a surgical mask (if the passenger can tolerate wearing one) to reduce the number of droplets expelled into the air by talking, sneezing, or coughing.
