NBC News Exclusive
With Matt Lauer

​Dr. Kent Brantly, the doctor infected with Ebola while working in West Africa, told NBC News in an exclusive interview that he spent the morning praying for a colleague, the latest American infected with the virus.

Brantly said he was “very close” to the doctor for SIM USA who was infected at the hospital where Brantly worked in Liberia. The doctor has not been named publicly.

“I was notified about that this morning. I spent a good long while tearful, in prayer,” Brantly said in an exclusive interview with Matt Lauer airing tonight on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and Wednesday on the TODAY show.

Brantly sat down for an extended interview in Asheville, North Carolina, where Brantly and his wife Amber have been living in seclusion with their children since his release nearly two weeks ago from Emory University Hospital.
