The American doctor who became ill with the Ebola virus while treating patients in Liberia will be released from a US hospital soon, a Christian aid group said Thursday.
“Dr. Kent Brantly is doing very well and hopes to be released sometime in the near future,” said a statement from Samaritan’s Purse.
It did not give any specifics on timing.
The staff at Emory University hospital in Atlanta, Georgia “are taking extremely great care of him,” the statement added.
Brantly and another American missionary, Nancy Writebol, both came down with Ebola while trying to help people in the liberia.
Brantly, 33, and Writebol, 60, were given an experimental drug treatment and were airlifted back to the United States.
Writebol is also said to be improving and is being treated at the same hospital as Brantly.
