Yesterday, the Dallas healthcare worker who had contacted ebola was identified as Nina Pham, one of 70 people who treated Thomas Duncan of Liberia. Today, she said that she was "doing well". She has received a transfusion from Dr, Kent Brantly, who survived his battle with the disease. Haz-mat crews sent to disinfect Pham's apartment found a creature far larger, but probably much more friendly, than an ebola virus - her dog, who was removed and taken to a "safe place".
A doctor in southern Texas, "troubled by the circumstances surrounding" Pham's contraction of ebola, wonders if the strain has mutated.
Meanwhile in Germany, a Sudanese man who had been working for the UN has died at the St. Georg clinic in Leipzig.
