This is the third patient to successfully survive the disease at Emory
A third unnamed patient with Ebola being treated at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta has survived the virus and has been discharged.
The patient, who asked to remain anonymous and is not one of the Dallas nurses, arrived at Emory on Sept. 9. Emory University Hospital announced on Monday that the patient was determined to be free of the virus and was discharged on Sunday Oct. 19.
The hospital has also successfully treated the two missionaries Dr. Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol. They are currently treating one of the Dallas nurses with Ebola who was flown from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital to Emory on Oct. 15.
Emory has a specialized serious communicable disease unit with an infectious disease team that had been training for the possibility of a case like Ebola for a decade.
