ATLANTA, GA -  American doctor Kent Brantly is out of the hospital. His blood tests show he's clear of the Ebola virus after being treated with the experimental drug, ZMAPP, at Emory University Hospital, in Atlanta.

After spending three weeks behind a piece of glass, it's safe to say he's happy to be going home. Brantly thanked all the doctors who helped in his recovery in a short press conference before he was released from the hospital on Thursday morning August 21.
If you're still concerned about the possibility of the virus spreading, doctors say don't be. Brantly can only spread the virus through his semen.

It seems the other infected American, missionary Nancy Writebol, is doing better than anyone could have expected.

She's apparently been out of the hospital since Tuesday. Here's to a fast recovery for the both of them.
