DALLAS — Texas nurse Nina Pham, one of two caregivers to contract

Ebola from Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan, is now free of the deadly

virus, the National Institutes of Health announced on Friday.

The Maryland medical research agency says Pham will be discharged from

their facility.

Details of her recovery are expected to be given at an 11:30 a.m. ET

news conference, where officials said Pham plans to make a statement.

The 26-year-old Pham arrived last week at the NIH Clinical Center in

Bethesda, Maryland. She had been flown there from Texas Presbyterian

Hospital in Dallas.

On Wednesday, the family of Amber Vinson — the other nurse to be

infected with Ebola while treating Duncan — said that 29-year-old is

now in good condition at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
