Wearing a blue shirt and walking under his own power, Baez appeared to be in good health.

The 43-year-old doctor, who specializes in internal medicine at a military hospital in Havana, contracted Ebola while deployed to help people infected with the disease in the West African country.

He developed symptoms of the often fatal disease on November 16 and was transferred to a Geneva hospital five days later.

The hospital said he recovered after treatment with experimental drugs.
