MADRID (Reuters) - A Spanish nurse infected with Ebola in Madrid after caring for two patients with the virus has tested negative in a second examination, meaning she is clear of the disease, doctors at the hospital treating her said on Tuesday.

A health source earlier confirmed Teresa Romero, 44, had tested negative for a second time. She was diagnosed with Ebola two weeks ago, becoming the first person to catch the disease outside Africa in the current outbreak.
