ATLANTA, GA - The Atlanta hospital where two American aid workers were brought after getting infected with the Ebola virus will hold a news conference to discuss their discharge.

Meanwhile, Franklin Graham, president of Samaritan's Purse, who one of the aid workers had been working for, says Dr. Kent Brantly has recovered.

A news release from Emory University Hospital didn't say when the two would be discharged or if it had already happened. A spokeswoman said more details will be given at the Thursday morning news conference.

Brantly and Nancy Writebol were flown out of the west African nation of Liberia earlier this month and have been getting treatment for the deadly disease in an isolation unit at the hospital.

The two were infected while working at a missionary clinic outside Liberia's capital.
