Nurse who survived Ebola gets her dog back
A Dallas nurse who recovered from Ebola will soon be reunited with her dog.
The King Charles Cavalier spaniel is named Bentley. It has been in quarantine. That's where it is kept away from people and animals. This is just in case the dog has the disease and could pass it along.
His owner, Nina Pham, was diagnosed with Ebola earlier this month. She had contracted the virus while caring for a Liberian man. He died in the hospital on Oct. 8. Ebola is a disease that began in west Africa. It can be deadly though many who get sick will live after they get proper medical treatment.
City spokeswoman Sana Syed said that the dog has tested negative for Ebola. His 21-day quarantine ends Saturday.
Pham was released from her own quarantine Oct. 24.
