US health worker with Ebola successfully treated, discharged from NIH

The American health care worker who was admitted at the National Institutes of Health with the Ebola virus last month has been discharged from the hospital Thursday after being successfully treated.

The newly-released patient, who has not been identified, arrived at NIH's Clinical Center on March 13 after he worked with a nonprofit organization treating patients in Liberia and Sierra Leone since November.

The hospital says he was released in good condition and is no longer contagious to the community.

He was the 11th person with Ebola to be treated in the United States and the second person admitted at NIH for the virus.

Dallas nurse Nina Pham was successfully treated for the disease at the Bethesda, Md., hospital last October.
