Ebola doctor cured and released from hospitalThe American doctor being treated for Ebola at an Atlanta hospital has recovered and is expected to leave the hospital Thursday.

Dr. Kent Brantly, who contracted the highly contagious and almost always deadly virus while treating patients in Liberia, is expected to leave the hospital following a press conference at 11 a.m.

Brantly, 33, received experimental treatment before being flown to Atlanta and placed in an isolation unit at Emory University Hospital on August 2. Nancy Writebol, 59, an aid worker who also contracted the virus in Liberia, arrived two days later and is also recovering, but it is not clear if she will be discharged from the hospital Thursday.

Frank Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse, the organization Brantly and Writebol were working with in Liberia, cheered their recovery in a statement.
