A medical worker from Norway, who got infected with the Ebola virus in Sierra Leone, has been discharged from the contagious disease isolation department of Ulleval University Clinical Hospital.
The patient was transferred from an isolation ward to an ordinary hospital ward because she poses no more threat, said a representative of the hospital press service. The patient's condition arouses no concern, but in the following few days she will remain under medical observation, the spokeswoman said.
The patient, who had worked for the international organization Doctors without Borders was infected around a month ago. On October 7, she was airlifted from Freetown to Oslo on board a medical plane. A spokesman for the contagious disease isolation block of Oslo University hospital said that during the patient's treatment, all possible measures had been taken to reduce to a minimum a possibility of the hospital staff being infected.
