Spanish Woman Cured of Ebola Moves to Normal Room

Madrid (AP)-A Spanish nursing assistant who recovered from an Ebola virus infection has left the isolation unit where she was being monitored and moved to a normal room, a hospital statement said Saturday.

Teresa Romero tested positive on Oct 6, but was declared cured of the virus 15 days later. She was the first known person to contract the disease outside of West Africa in the latest outbreak.

Madrid's Carlos III hospital said that Romero, 44, was now being attended by hospital staff that no longer needed to wear protective outfits.

Romero was able to reunite with her husband, Javier Limon, and other staff members at the hospital.

The statement said tests confirmed Romero was free from all traces of the virus in her body fluids.
Romero had treated two Spanish missionaries who died of Ebola in August and September after they were flown back to Spain from West Africa.


She still needs to recover fully from the after-effects of the serious infection.
