Two American missionaries who contracted the Ebola virus while treating patients in Liberia, have recovered and have been discharged from an Atlanta hospital.
Dr. Kent Brantly spoke to reporters before leaving Emory University Hospital on Thursday saying, "I am forever thankful to God for sparing my life."
During the news conference, Dr. Bruce Ribner, medical director of the Infectious Disease Unit, said the other American missionary Nancy Writebol was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday after testing clear of the virus.
He says the two aid workers pose no health risk to the public.
