141014-nina-pham-jsw-1107a_12f8196d05b796db4c767c306d09fbaaNina Pham, the Dallas nurse infected with Ebola as she treated dying patient Thomas Eric Duncan, is free of the virus, National Institutes of Health officials said Friday.

Pham, who was diagnosed Oct. 12, was transferred to the NIH hospital outside Washington where there’s a special biocontainment unit. Her fellow nurse, Amber Vinson, tested virus-free earlier this week, her family said, but stayed in a special biocontainment unit at Emory University Hospital for a few more days of treatment. NIH officials were scheduled to give more details later Friday.
