America's Ebola Epidemic Currently Consists Of One Person With Ebola | Think Progress

Vinson, one of nearly 70 medical personnel who treated Thomas Eric Duncan, received her diagnosis days after the CDC announced her colleague Nina Pham had contracted the virus. The diagnosis caused further worry when it was revealed that Vinson had flown commercially days before being hospitalized.
Pham, who fell ill two days after Duncan succumbed, was released from the National Institutes of Health last week after two weeks of treatment. She visited the White House not long after, where she and President Barack Obama shared a hug.
