A nurse who caught Ebola while caring for a patient diagnosed in Dallas was released from a hospital, free of the virus, and met with President Barack Obama at the White House.
Nurse Nina Pham said she felt “fortunate and blessed to be standing here today,” as she left the National Institutes of Health’s hospital outside Washington.
She thanked her health care team in Dallas and at the NIH and singled out fellow Ebola survivor Dr. Kent Brantly, who recovered after becoming infected in Liberia, for donating plasma containing Ebola-fighting antibodies as part of her care.
