American Who Contracted Ebola Discharged from Hospital


BETHESDA, Md. (AP) - Officials say an American health care worker who contracted Ebola while volunteering in Sierra Leone has been discharged from a federal hospital.

The National Institutes of Health said in a news release Thursday that the patient, who arrived at the NIH hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, on March 13, was discharged in good condition and is no longer contagious to the community.

The patient was in critical condition at one point during his hospitalization.

The patient's name and age have not been released. He was working with Partners in Health, a Boston-based nonprofit organization treating patients in Liberia and Sierra Leone since November.

The patient is the 11th person with Ebola to be treated in the U.S. and the second admitted to the NIH Clinical Center.
