American Ebola Patient to be Released from Hospital Today
UPDATE: Both Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol will be released today from the Atlanta hospital. They were both injected with the experimental serum, ZMapp.
ABC News reports Dr. Kent Brantly, an American who contracted Ebola while doing missionary work in Africa, will be released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
Dr. Brantly was working with Samaritan's Purse to help treat Ebola patients in Liberia. He was one of two Americans who contracted the virus and was the first person to receive the experimental serum known as ZMapp.
Emory is expected to hold a press conference Thursday morning at 11 a.m. to talk about the release, and Dr. Brantly is expected to be there and make a statement.
