Two American missionaries who were sickened with Ebola while working in Liberia and were treated with an experimental drug are doing better and have left the 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 in Atlanta, Georgia for treatment in special isolation units three weeks ago. "The discharge from the hospital of both these patients poses no public health threat," said Bruce Ribner, director of Emory's Infectious Disease Unit.
It took six months, and as many bullets, for Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson to go from local hero to internationally-known outcast for the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. Late on Wednesday, a middle-aged white couple turned up in Ferguson holding pro-Wilson placards.
