🕐 1 min read

WASHINGTON (AP) — National Institutes of Health says the condition of the first nurse to be diagnosed with Ebola after treating an infected man at a Dallas hospital has been upgraded to good.

The NIH said in a statement posted on its website Tuesday afternoon that Nina Pham’s clinical status had been upgraded from fair. The statement said no other information was available.

The 26-year-old Pham arrived at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, late Thursday. She had been flown there from Texas Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

Pham is one of two nurses in Dallas who became infected with Ebola while treating Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of the disease Oct. 8.
