First Dallas nurse to contract Ebola transferred to Maryland; Yale doctoral student in isolation after returning from Liberia
(CNN) — Dallas Ebola patient Nina Pham will be transferred to a National Institutes of Health facility in Maryland, according to two sources familiar with the situation.
Pham is reportedly stable, and she “seems to be doing reasonably well,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Thursday at a House Energy and Commerce subcommittee hearing. Fauci emphasized that he hasn’t seen Pham, and was citing reports from the Dallas hospital where she has been treated.
In northeast Ohio, one person has been quarantined and six others have quarantined and are monitoring themselves for Ebola after coming into contact or being in the vicinity of Ebola-stricken Texas nurse Amber Vinson, said Ohio Department of Health spokesman Jay Carey.
Meanwhile a Yale doctoral student who recently returned to Connecticut from Liberia and has a fever is in isolation at Yale-New Haven Hospital and is being tested for Ebola, officials at the hospital said Thursday. Results should be available within 24 hours.
