The university announced Tuesday morning that it will send Texas nurse Amber Vinson home Ebola free 13 days after admitting her to the Atllanta hospital's isolation ward. Vinson is one of two nurses infected while caring for Thomas Eric Duncan of Liberia who is, so far, Ebola's only victim in America.

About a dozen soldiers returning from West Africa are being quarantined in Vincenza, Italy, and will be held there for 21 days, many news outlets reported Monday. The troops are not said to have had any direct contact with Ebola-infected patients.
