Posted:

 Cuba's Health Ministry says a doctor who contracted Ebola during an aid mission in Africa has overcome the disease and will be brought home soon.

   The ministry says tests at a hospital in Geneva, Switzerland, confirm that 43-year-old Felix Baez Sarria is now clear of the Ebola virus. The report was carried by Cuban state news media.

   Baez is among 165 Cuban medical personnel sent to Sierra Leone to fight the disease. He showed symptoms of the disease on Nov. 16 and was brought to Switzerland for treatment with the experimental drug ZMapp.
