Texas nurse free of Ebola virus; discharged from NIH Clinical Center
The NIH Clinical Center has discharged Ms. Nina Pham, the Texas nurse who was admitted on Thursday, October 16, with Ebola virus disease, after confirming that she is now free of the virus. It is critical to remember that people who have survived Ebola are not contagious and can no longer spread disease. We would not be releasing Ms. Pham if we were not completely confident in the knowledge that she has fully recovered, is virus free and poses no public health threat. The healthcare team at the NIH is pleased to have had the opportunity to provide care to Ms. Pham and guide her recovery. We extend our best wishes to her as she continues to regain her strength and return to normal life.
