American monitored for Ebola at Medical Center released



The patient monitored for possible exposure to the Ebola virus at Nebraska Medicine was released, say hospital officials.

The unidentified American health care was providing medical assistance in the Democratic Republic of the Congo when the exposure could have happened.

Nebraska Medicine claimed that the patient completed the 21-day monitoring period and did not develop any symptoms.

Taylor Wilson Hospital spokesman said: "This individual has never developed the potentially fatal disease and poses no risk to the public."

The patient left Nebraska Medicine and the city of Omaha this morning, the hospital tells KETV.

"Because this individual was symptom-free during the monitoring period, it was determined that they did not have Ebola and therefore were free to leave our facility and return home," said Dr. Ted Cieslak, specialist in infectious diseases with Nebraska Medicine.

If the patient had developed Ebola, they would have been transferred to Nebraska's Biocontainment Unit, where three patients with Ebola were treated in 201
