    The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center in Maryland reported that the healthcare worker admitted to the center with Ebola was discharged in good condition.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The Ebola positive US healthcare worker who was treated at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center in the US state of Maryland has been discharged and is no longer contagious, the NIH announced in a statement.

    “The American healthcare worker admitted to the NIH Clinical Center on March 13 with Ebola virus disease was discharged today in good condition after having been successfully treated at the NIH Clinical Center Special Clinical Studies Unit,” the statement read on Thursday. “The individual is no longer contagious to the community. At the request of the patient, no further information is being provided.”

    “The individual is no longer contagious to the community. At the request of the patient, no further information is being provided,” the NIH said.
