Dallas Nurse with Ebola Identified
A Dallas nurse diagnosed with the Ebola virus over the weekend has reportedly received a blood transfusion from Ebola survivor Dr. Kent Brantly.
The nurse is a Texas Christian University graduate identified by a family member as 26-year-old Nina Pham.
Father Jim Khoi, who is Pham’s pastor, told News 8 that she has now received a blood transfusion from a “good” and “devoted” man who survived Ebola.
Sources close to Brantly told ABC News that he made the blood donation on Sunday after being asked by Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Pham had been providing care for Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient diagnosed in the U.S.
