WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Dallas nurse who contracted Ebola is now free of the virus, U.S. health officials said on Friday.

Nina Pham, who contracted the disease while treating a man who later died of Ebola in a Dallas hospital, had been undergoing treatment at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, since Oct. 16.

The NIH scheduled a Friday news conference to discuss Pham’s discharge.
