Nearly a week after health officials declared her Ebola free, Amber Vinson will be released from Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, officials said on Tuesday. The news means that there is just one known person in the U.S. who has an active case of Ebola.
Vinson, one of nearly 70 medical personnel who treated Thomas Eric Duncan, received her diagnosis days after the CDC announced her colleague Nina Pham had contracted the virus. The diagnosis caused further worry when it was revealed that Vinson had flown commercially days before being hospitalized.
Pham, who fell ill two days after Duncan succumbed, was released from the National Institutes of Health last week after two weeks of treatment. She visited the White House not long after, where she and President Barack Obama shared a hug.
For weeks, Vinsonís family members fought criticism, stressing that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved her travel plans. According to hospital officials, Vinson will make her first public statement during a national news conference at 1 p.m. E.T.

1. Just to add to this, I expect no woo science believers to post a reply, thank you very much.

70 medical personnel who treated the first case, the ineptly medically handled and now deceased Mr. Duncan, the one death in America, who were with him, up close and within vomit trajectory.....are all fine.

And everyone else is fine, fine, fine, and fine and fine and fine.

I pray for Superhero Dr. Spencer, M.D., M.P.H., every day, the last case.

2. The bottom line of this story is the Ebola epidemic is overblown.
