Americans Treated for Ebola Released From Hospital

The two American aid workers that were treated at Emory Hospital in Atlanta for the Ebola virus have been discharged. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that the two patients no longer have Ebola virus in their blood and therefore pose no risk to household contacts or the public. Those who recover from Ebola are not contagious in terms of transmitting the virus through close personal contact with blood or body fluids such as urine, feces, sweat, or vomit. It is unclear if the experimental Ebola treatment ZMapp, a monoclonal antibody, played a role in their recovery or if their own immune systems fought off the virus.
