Dallas Nurse Amber Joy Vinson is Now Ebola-Free

The second Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola from Thomas Duncan has tested Ebola-free.

One week after Dallas nurse Amber Vinson had been diagnosed with Ebola, we learned Wednesday the CDC declared her to be Ebola-free.

A just-released photo of Vinson speaks volumes. She’s smiling, taking a “selfie” from her hospital bed in Atlanta. Her mother Debra Berry issued a statement. It reads, in part:

“We all know that further treatment will be necessary as Amber continues to regain strength, but these latest developments have truly answered prayers and bring our family one step closer to reuniting with her at home.”

The first Ebola nurse, Nina Pham, has been upgraded to “good” condition. Her dog has tested Ebola-free but remains in quarantine.
