U.S. doctor infected with Ebola to be released today

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) -- A spokeswoman for Samaritan's Purse says an American doctor who was infected with Ebola will be released from an Atlanta hospital today.

Alison Geist tells The Associated Press she doesn't know the exact time Dr. Kent Brantly will be released but confirms it will happen today.

Emory University Hospital says it will hold a news conference to discuss his and the other aid worker's discharge.

Brantly and Nancy Writebol were flown out of the West African nation of Liberia earlier this month and have been getting treatment for the deadly disease in an isolation unit at the hospital. The two were infected while working at a missionary clinic outside Liberia's capital.
