Dallas Nurse Cleared of Ebola

The second Dallas nurse diagnosed with Ebola appears to have beaten the virus while receiving care at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.

The nurse, Amber Vinson, is “regaining strength” and health officials are “no longer able to detect virus in her body,” her mother said in a statement.

The announcement makes Vinson the sixth American to recover from Ebola since the epidemic began.

On Tuesday, NBC cameraman Ashoka Mukpo tweeted that he was virus-free after three consecutive days of negative tests.
