The two American aid workers who contracted the Ebola virus in Liberia and were transferred to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment have been discharged from the hospital, the Associated Press reports. Both received the experimental ZMapp treatment, are now free of the virus, and pose no public health risk, according to the head of Emory's infectious disease unit.
