US doctor with Ebola to be released from hospital
An American doctor who contracted the Ebola virus disease while treating patients in West Africa will be discharged from a US hospital Thursday, the aid group he worked for said.
Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan's Purse, said in a statement that he had "marvelled at Dr. Brantly's courageous spirit as he has fought this horrible virus" and thanked staff at the hospital, Xinhua reported.
Brantly was flown to Emory University Hospital for treatment Aug 2. A second US Ebola patient, Nancy Writebol, arrived there three days later.
Both patients received an experimental treatment known as ZMapp while still in West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak has killed more than 1,300 people. Experts, however, warned that it was still unclear if their recovery was due to the ZMapp treatment.
Writebol's husband said Monday that his wife was slowly recovering and that they enjoyed a tearful reunion Sunday through an isolation glass at the hospital.
