The Spanish nurse’s aide who contracted Ebola after treating virus-stricken patients in Madrid is free of the virus, her doctors announcedTuesday after another test on her.
Teresa Romero Ramos is clear of Ebola, physicians at Carlos III hospital said.
Also on Tuesday, the National Institute of Health said the condition of Nina Pham, a Texas nurse who contracted Ebola, was upgraded from fair to good. Pham is at the NIH Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland. She cared for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person to die of Ebola in the United States, at a Texas hospital.
While Spain welcomes the good news about Ebola, the United States is doing more to help prevent the spread of the virus. The Department of Homeland Security said Tuesday that all arriving passengers from West African countries that Ebola has hit hardest — Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea must land in one of the five U.S. airports that have enhanced Ebola screening.
