Fort Worth doctor, Kent Brantly, is being released from the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta today. Doctors there say he is completely cured of the Ebola Virus he contracted while doing missionary work for Samaritans Purse in Liberia last month. Considering that Brantly was previously described as being gravely ill, many are calling his recovery miraculous.
Following his release from the hospital, Dr. Brantly is expected to speak at a brief news conference Thursday morning. We’re told he’ll then head off to reconnect with his family, in an undisclosed location.
According to The World Health Organization the Ebola virus has recently killed more than 1,200 people in West African countries.
