An Ebola-infected nurse in Dallas is now free of the virus.

Nina Pham, 26, was released from the hospital Friday, according to the National Institutes of Health.

She was the first nurse diagnosed with Ebola after treating infected man, Thomas Duncan, at a hospital in Dallas.

Pham arrived last week at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. She had been flown there from Texas Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

Pham got a hug from President Obama during a visit in the oval office yesterday. It came just hours after she was declared Ebola free.

She is one of the two Dallas nurses to get Ebola while treating Thomas Duncan, who died from the virus on October 8.
