ATLANTA — The two American aid workers who were infected with the deadly Ebola virus in Africa have been discharged from an Atlanta hospital where they were treated, the aid groups they were working for said Thursday.

Alison Geist, a spokesman for Samaritan's Purse, said she did not know the exact time Dr. Kent Brantly would be released from Emory University Hospital but confirmed it would happen Thursday.

The group SIM says Nancy Writebol was discharged from Emory on Tuesday. Her husband, David, said in a statement that she is free of the virus but has been left in a significantly weakened condition and decided it would be best to leave the hospital privately and head off to rest and recuperate at an undisclosed location.

Something just doesn't add up her. These people were dying of Ebola, and now, 2 weeks later they are cured? And they are releasing them out in the general public after how long they were deemed Ebola free???? Shouldn't they be observed for a few more weeks to ensure public safety?? Why were they brought back to the US to treat? Wouldn't it had been safer to treat them outside of the US?

Not trusting the CDC much with anything these days. Already rumors of Ebola cropping up scattered across the country.
Talk to me when you are bleeding from your orifices.

LSS ........ how about Ronnie RayGun dening the CDC funds when the AIDS epidemic first started, because he believed it was God's punishment to homosexuals.

ok no one has to get ugly, I am simply attempting to educate myself and I am not alone with my concerns. If the Ebola virus can remain in semen for up to 7 weeks after a supposedly 'cure', then cannot it still be in other bodily fluids such as blood, urine, and saliva? So doesn't this pose a risk to our water supplies and those that have daily contact with these doctors? What if these people have a cut on their hands, then go to the local grocery and handle produce?
