Ebola patient to be moved to Bethesda for treatment

Updated: Oct. 17 at 4:54 p.m.

A nurse who was infected with Ebola in Texas will be moved to Bethesda for treatment, CNN reported.

Nina Pham, one of two nurses who contracted the disease in Dallas, could be moved to the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda as soon as Thursday, a federal official told NBC News. Bethesda is about a half-hour drive from D.C.and has its own stop on the Red Line.

The NIH is one of four facilities in the country equipped to treat Ebola. Another nurse in Dallas, who was also infected after treating the patient who died last week, was moved to the Emory University Hospital in Atlanta for treatment.
