Doctor Who Contracted Ebola Sent Home

Kent BrantleyATLANTA, Ga. — One of the American doctors who contracted Ebola, and was once feared to be near death, is calling today “a miraculous” one.

That’s because he was sent home from the hospital this morning after nearly three weeks of intense treatment.

Dr. Kent Brantley and Nancy Writebol were working in Africa when they got sick. The two were given an experimental drug. Now, both have been released. Doctors are saying this is nothing short of a miracle.

Dr. Brantley says, “I’m thrilled to be alive, to be well and be reunited with my family.”

Doctors say the Ebola patients do have healing ahead of them but can no longer spread it easily.
