Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American flown back to the U.S. for treatment of Ebola, is urging calm for the people of Dallas and elsewhere who are worried about contracting the deadly disease.

Brantly, speaking Friday to Abilene Christian University's alumni magazine, acknowledged fears some have shared since Thomas Duncan was hospitalized in Dallas with Ebola. Brantly says people should be finding ways to help the outbreak in West Africa, "not worrying that because we live 100 miles from a hospital that treated a patient that we are at risk."

Brantly also says he spoke with a doctor caring for Duncan and was willing to donate blood, but their blood types did not match. Duncan died Wednesday.

Brantly was visiting his former school to discuss efforts to combat Ebola.
