The two U.S. humanitarian aid workers who contracted Ebola while working in Africa and were flown to the U.S. aboard a specially outfitted Phoenix Air Gulfstream III have been released after successful treatment at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta. Nancy Writebol, who worked for ministry SIM International and was flown back on August 5, was discharged yesterday; Dr. Kent Brantly, who worked for aid group Samaritan’s Purse and was transported to the U.S. on August 2, was discharged today. Phoenix Air vice president and general counsel Randy Davis, a pilot on the August 5 flight, told AIN, “Our flight and medical crews conducted successful air missions. What made them really successful is when both patients walked out of Emory fully healed.”
