One less U.S. Ebola patient!


Nina Pham, the first nurse diagnosed with Ebola in the United States after caring for an infected patient in Dallas, has been declared "virus free," officials at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., said Friday morning.

Pham, 26, was treated at the facility, which has a special unit for patients who need advanced isolation and extended stays. Officials scheduled a news conference for 11:30 a.m. Friday and she is expected to be discharged.
