American doctor treated for Ebola released from hospital

ABIDJAN, Aug 21 (Reuters) - An American doctor who contracted Ebola treating victims of the deadly virus in Liberia has been released from a U.S. hospital after receiving treatment with an experimental drug, his charity said on Thursday.

Kent Brantly was given ZMapp, a trial drug used on a handful of patients in the West African outbreak, and flown to the United States this month. He was released from Atlanta’s Emory University Hospital, according to a statement from Samaritan’s Purse. (Reporting by Joe Bavier; Editing by Daniel Flynn and John Stonestreet)
