ATLANTA (AP) — The husband of a second American aid worker released after being treated at an Atlanta hospital for the Ebola virus says she is resting and recuperating at an undisclosed location.
David Writebol says his 59-year-old wife, Nancy Writebol, decided it would be best to leave the hospital "privately." An Emory University doctor said during a news conference Thursday that she left the hospital Tuesday.
Dr. Kent Brantly, the first American aid worker treated at Emory, told the audience, "Today is a miraculous day." The 33-year-old doctor said he never imagined himself being in this position when he moved to the west African nation of Liberia to work at a missionary clinic.
Brantly and Writebol were treated for the deadly disease in an isolation unit at the hospital.
