WASHINGTON – One of the two nurses who contracted Ebola in Dallas will be moved to Maryland.
Dallas County, Texas Judge Clay Jenkins says Nina Pham will be taken Thursday from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.
The NIH facility has one of four biocontainment units in the United States.
Pham, 26, was involved in the care of Thomas Eric Duncan, who died of Ebola. Duncan contracted Ebola in Liberia and was treated in Dallas.
She is the first nurse to have contracted Ebola in the U.S.
Her condition was upgraded to good condition Tuesday and remained good Wednesday, Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas said.
On Tuesday Pham released a statement saying she was doing well and feels blessed.
“I’m doing well and want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers. I am blessed by the support of family and friends and am blessed to be cared for by the best team of doctors and nurses in the world here at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas,” Pham said.
