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.
