  The two U.S. patients who were treated for Ebola have been discharged from Emory University Hospital. They had been in an isolation ward since returning from Liberia early this month and are the first patients treated for Ebola on American soil.

Emory held a press conference Thursday morning announcing the release of Dr. Kent Brantly and the previous discharge of Nancy Writebol. WABE’s Jim Burress was there and joined us by phone from Emory University Hospital.
