2 African countries freed of Ebola; monitoring period over for 43 Texans


By Holly Yan

(CNN) -- Forty-three people who came into contact with Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan are now officially cleared after not demonstrating any symptoms during a 21-day monitoring period, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Monday.

One more will be cleared later Monday, and four others will complete their 21-day monitoring period soon, he said.

"Thankfully, they are all asymptomatic, and it looks like none of them will get Ebola," said Jenkins, who is overseeing response efforts in Dallas.

The news conflicted with information Jenkins provided to CNN on Sunday indicating that all 48 people would be cleared at midnight.
