It's good news for the family of the Italian nurse who contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone, as she has been cured of the disease.

The Italian health ministry said the nurse who worked with medical charity Emergency, has been cured and has left hospital.

The male nurse from Sardinia, who was the second Italian to contract the disease, spent a month receiving treatment at the Spallanzani infectious diseases clinic in Rome.

The health ministry said the nurse had been treated with drugs sourced overseas but did not reveal further details.

Over 11,000 people have so far died from the Ebola disease although it is now on a downward spiral, even as the Ebola mission in Ghana closed shop earlier in the week.
