American doctor free of virus

The doctor from the New York City, Craig Spencer, who was infected with Ebola in West Africa, is fully cured and discharged from the hospital. It is reported by The New York Times.

A spokeswoman for the Bellevue Hospital Center, where Dr. Spencer was treated, said that "after a rigorous course of treatment and testing," Dr. Spencer posed "no public health risk."

According to the publication, doctors have used an experimental drug for the treatment of Spencer. In addition, he underwent injection of blood plasma donated by a recovered Ebola patient, Nancy Writebol, a 59-year-old missionary who contracted the virus in Liberia.
