Missionary Ebola Patient Released From Atlanta Hospital: ‘God Saved My Life’

  

Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly have been cured of the Ebola virus and released from Emory Hospital in Atlanta. Brantly, 33, called his recovery “a miraculous day.” “I am thrilled to be alive, to be well, and reunited with my family,” he said. He also told a news conference at Emory Hospital that “God saved my life.” Both patients were given blood and urine tests to determine whether they still had the virus, Emory doctors said in a statement released this morning.

    And Obama who allowed the missionAry and doc I to the secure hospital. Last week you were savaging Obama for letting them in. And an experimental drug. Ut nice YIU guys agree with Obama. And rhe Ebola epidemic looks like. Averted.

    • Earlybird

      Averted, are you kidding me thousands are dying. It is a stunt , nothing more. We don’t agree with oduma he is an opportunist at best

  • Endgame

    Looks like they have a cure.

    • Earlybird

      Why are they withholding it? If they really have a cure.

      • leewacker

        I don’t think they do have a cure–at least one that will work on all patients. Also, this Ebola outbreak is a new strain of the disease—most likely will require more work to be done. As for the good doctor, I’m glad he’s up on his feet, and doing well–BUT–is he really cured?
        Or, is the disease merely waiting, and biding its time? It would be a mistake for him to return to Africa, I think. But, that’s exactly what he’ll do—unfinished business works on one’s mind!

    • leewacker

      Its a new strain of the disease. I greatly doubt if they have a cure for it as yet.

  • SandraJ

    Thanks to the missionary for giving credit where it’s due. I noticed that the liberal news people managed to delete the mention of God from major network reports. Prayer works. Wish Obama would try it.

    • leewacker

      Obama prays, but not to the Christian God, nor any other proper God that I know of—

    • Chris P

      What about all the people that “God” killed? Why does he pick and choose?

      The reason why these people survived was because of SCIENCE.

      • SandraJ

        God is in everything, and that includes science. You’ll have to ask God why he picks and chooses; that is, if you ever see Him face to face. Your choice.

    The first cure for a virus, a miracle? or is it just PC Crap?

    • Earlybird

      PC crap

      • leewacker

        I agree! The doctors in Africa say this strain of Ebola is new and far more virulent than any of the other strains they have seen–therefore, I greatly doubt if there is any cure for it–at least not the “miracle cure” hinted at in this story. No, it is merely PC Crap!

  • Doctor_M7

    The only cures known for a virus is inoculation of a weakened strain, which allows the body to develop its own immunity. The virus itself isn’t really destroyed, and people who have developed such immunity can become carriers without any outward symptoms. We have seen this occur time and time again with the HIV/AIDS virus.

    I hope they have indeed developed a permanent cure, but it may be they have only developed a temporary remission, and will need periodic re-treatment, with the patient infectious to others.

    I remain skeptical, until long term evaluation proves otherwise.

    • leewacker

      You didn’t think to mention Typhoid. Remember Typhoid Mary? She had had the disease, got over it, but became a carrier. How many people were infected by her I don’t recall, but this doctor really should not be around other people, especially those weakened by illness, whether it was Ebola or not. But, he’ll go back to Africa on the first chance he gets, and will either infect others, or will suddenly die.

  • leslie_paul76

    The doctor is in remission as there is no cure yet.

  • bayman61

    Why did he come here for treatment when he was treating them in Liberia? Did he think that God would not save him if he remained in Liberia? He does not trust the treatment he was giving these people? H endangered us here by bring that dreaded disease here.

  • Chris P

    Amazingly conceited – why did he get flown all the way back and treated at great expense if God did the fixing – why didn’t God fix him there? Absurd.

  • junkmailbin

    self righteous arse. it actual took millions of dollars and the finest medical care in the world. Is Franklin Graham prepared to spend that kind of money on each Ebola patient???
    this guy needs to realize that he lucked out and hundreds of thousands of people will continue to suffer that could have used the money for a better life
