BERLIN — A scientist who was infected with Ebola while working for the World Health Organization in Sierra Leone has recovered and been discharged from a German hospital.
The University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf says the unidentified man, who was brought to Germany in late August, left the hospital on Friday.
In a statement Saturday it said he was doing well and had returned to his home country.
WHO said the man from Senegal had been infected while working for the agency as a consultant in West Africa, which is experiencing the biggest Ebola outbreak on record.
Another patient who contracted Ebola in West Africa is being treated in Frankfurt. The unidentified Ugandan man who worked for an Italian aid group was brought there on Friday from Sierra Leone.
