U.S. Ebola Patients Released



(AP) - A spokeswoman for Samaritan's Purse says an American doctor who was infected with Ebola is being released from an Atlanta hospital.

Dr. Kent Brantly and Aid Worker Nancy Writebol were flown out of the west African nation of Liberia earlier this month and have been getting treatment for the deadly disease in an isolation unit at the hospital.

The two were infected while working at a missionary clinic outside Liberia's capital.

Both patients were treated with the experimental drug ZMapp, though it isn't known whether the drug helped them in their recovery.

Writebol was released from the hospital on Tuesday. Brantly is leaving Emory University Hospital today.
