American Ebola victims headed to U.S.

(CNN) – The State Department says two American Ebola patients will be evacuated from West Africa and arrive in the U.S. within the next few days.

It could be the first time someone stricken with the virus, which has no cure and a very low survival rate, crosses into the United States.

But don't worry, government officials say they can handle it. But while the CDC tries to ease fears here in the US, the World Health Organization today said the outbreak is moving faster than the efforts to control.

CNN's Pamela Brown reports.
