Ebola Patient Released From Emory University Hospital


There are more Ebola patients in the U.S. than we think. Turns out that there was one at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, GA that wanted to remain anonymous. The man, who was admitted to Emory on Sept. 9th after contracting the virus in West Africa, was released from the hospital on Oct. 19th after being determined Ebola-free, USA Today reports. No information has been released about the man but he is expected to issue a statement soon.

The first person to be diagnosed with Ebola outside of the U.S. has also been determined cured. The Spanish nurse in Madrid, whose name still hasn’t been released, that contracted Ebola after caring for a priest who was infected has been released from care.

One of the two Dallas nurses who caught the virus while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan, Amber Vinson, is still receiving care at Emory. It  became the first hospital to treat American Ebola victims this summer when care was provided to Dr. Kent Brantly and missionary Nancy Writebol.
