Dr. Craig Spencer, the last remaining U.S. patient with Ebola, was released from Bellevue Hospital in New York City Tuesday with plenty of hugs and congratulations.

Spencer, 33, was infected with Ebola while working with Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF or Doctors Without Borders) in Guinea.

"Today I am healthy and no longer infectious," Spencer told a cheering crowd gathered in the lobby of the landmark hospital where he was treated for 19 days.
