DALLAS, Texas — First nurse Ebola stricken in the United States, Nina Pham has been five times tested, cleared of the disease and released from the National Institute of Health (NIH) in Bethesda Maryland Friday. She read a statement to the press as news of her release broke.
Outside NIH, Nina spoke to the nation with thanks for prayers, well wishes for those still ill and a request for privacy. Pham was transferred to NIH for treatment from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas where she first contracted the disease.
“I do not know how I can thank you everyone enough,” Pham said for the prayers and well wishes so many have sent her way.
“I join you in prayer now,” Pham said for doctor Craig Spencer, fellow nurse Amber Vinson and all those that continue to fight the disease. Spencer was diagnosed with Ebola Thursday in New York. He had returned nine days previous and was self-monitoring for symptoms.
