At last, good news:
Nina Pham, saying “I’m doing really well,” left Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in an ambulance for a chartered small jet waiting at the city’s Love Field. The plane departed at 7:09 p.m. CT and arrived at an airport at Frederick, Md., less than three hours later.
Pham walked off the plane with assistance while wearing a protective suit. She climbed into an ambulance for transport to the National Institutes of Health’s state-of-the-art facility in Bethesda, Md.
Fellow health-care workers lined her path out of the Dallas hospital, cheering and waving signs expressing love and support for their colleague.
Let’s hope this scare serves as a wakeup call, even if the current administration hits the snooze alarm for the next two years.
