Amer­i­can Ebola doc: ‘I am thrilled to be alive’

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

AT­LANTA (AP) — Call­ing it a “mirac­u­lous day,” an Amer­i­can doc­tor in­fected with Ebola left his iso­la­tion unit and warmly hugged his doc­tors and nurses on Thurs­day, show­ing the world that he poses no public health threat one month af­ter get­ting sick with the virus.

Dr. Kent Brantly and his fel­low med­i­cal mis­sion­ary, Nancy Write­bol, who was qui­etly dis­charged two days ear­lier, are still weak but should re­cover com­pletely, and no one need fear be­ing in con­tact with them, said Dr. Bruce Rib­ner, who runs the in­fec­tious dis­ease unit at Emory Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal.
