1st Dallas nurse with Ebola in fair condition

FREDERICK, Maryland (AP) — An official says the first nurse to be diagnosed with Ebola after treating an infected man at a Dallas hospital is in fair condition and being treated at a specialized isolation unit near Washington.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Friday that Nina Pham's condition is stable and that she is resting comfortably.

Pham arrived shortly before midnight Thursday at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

She is being treated by staff specializing in infectious disease and critical care.
