An American who contracted Ebola is no longer infected.  Officials at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta say the man, who has not been identified, was released Sunday after tests showed he no longer had the virus.  He had been in the hospital since September 9th.  He contracted the potentially-fatal disease while working in Sierra Leone and was evacuated to the U.S. on a private chartered flight. 

Two other Americans who contracted Ebola while in Liberia were treated at Emory and released back in August.  A Texas nurse who contracted the virus from Thomas Duncan, the Liberian national who died from the disease at a Dallas hospital, remains in isolation at the Atlanta hospital.
