Two American missionaries who were sickened with the dangerous Ebola virus while working in Liberia are doing better and have been released from an Atlanta hospital, doctors said Thursday. Doctor Kent Brantly, 33, and Nancy Writebol, 60, both Christian aid workers, were infected with Ebola in Monrovia last month as the largest outbreak in history swept West Africa. They were airlifted to Emory University Hospital for treatment three weeks ago. Writebol was released on August 19, and did not appear at a press conference with Brantly.
