A Norwegian woman who contracted the Ebola virus while working for Doctors Without Borders in Sierra Leone has been cured, the organisation said Monday.

"We are very happy to learn that our colleague has been cured," said Jonas Haagensen, the spokesman of the Norwegian branch of the organisation also known by its French name, Medecins sans Frontieres.

He told AFP that the woman had left the intensive care unit of Oslo University Hospital.
