MERS Patient Released From Hospital



The first American diagnosed with a mysterious virus from the Middle East has been released from a northwestern Indiana hospital.

Community Hospital in Munster says the patient released Friday is considered fully recovered and has been cleared to travel, if necessary.

Community Hospital chief medical information officer Dr. Alan Kumar says the patient has tested negative for Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, and "poses no threat to the community."
