Ebola Patient In Atlanta To Be Released Today
Both Americans infected with the deadly Ebola virus are back in the U.S., undergoing treatment at Emory University Hospital.
Kent Brantly, an American Doctor infected with Ebola in Liberia, is set to be released from Atlanta's Emory University Hospital today.
His blood tests now show he is now clear of the virus.
You'll recall he was treated with an experimental drug known as Zmapp.
Another missionary, Nancy Writebol, was also infected.
Both were evacuated from Liberia earlier this month in a plane specially equipped with an isolation tent.
Emory will hold a news conference at 10 a.m., where Brantly will give a statement before leaving the hospital.
Meanwhile, the number of new cases continues to grow.
The World Health Organization said there are 1,350 confirmed, suspected, and probable Ebola deaths in West Africa.
