As Ebola panic spreads in New York City, here's some good news: The two Dallas nurses who contracted the virus earlier this month are now free of the deadly disease. This morning, health officials in Maryland announced that Nina Pham, the first nurse diagnosed, has tested negative for Ebola. The announcement comes less than two days after the family of Amber Vinson—who first tested positive for the virus last week—said she had been declared virus-free.
