DALLAS (KRON) — Amber Vinson, one of two nurses who contracted Ebola while treating Thomas Duncan of Liberia earlier this month was discharged from Emory University Hospital Tuesday.
Vinson tested free from the virus after being hospitalized for nearly two weeks.
She and Nina Pham — the other Dallas nurse who was discharged from a National Institutes of Health facility in Maryland on Friday — are different from the handful of other U.S. Ebola cases in the United States because they caught the disease in America, rather than contracting it in West Africa.
This leaves a single person in the United States now battling Ebola, though she and others — including President Barack Obama — stressed the fight against the deadly virus isn’t over.
