🕐 1 min read

 

ATLANTA (AP) — A Dallas nurse who was being treated for Ebola will attend a news conference discussing her discharge from an Atlanta hospital after tests showed she’s virus-free.

A news release from Emory University Hospital says Amber Vinson will be present at the news conference scheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday and will make a statement.

Vinson worked as a nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas and cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian man who died of Ebola at the hospital.

Vinson’s family announced Oct. 22 that doctors could no longer detect the virus in Vinson’s body.

Vinson was one of two nurses who became infected while caring for Duncan. The other nurse, Nina Pham, was released Oct. 24 from a hospital attached to the National Institutes of Health.
