Ebola patient Nina Pham's condition downgraded to "fair"

CNN has obtained new images from inside the plane that nurse Nina Pham flew from Dallas to a new hospital, the National Institutes of Health in Maryland.

In the photo, health care workers on board are no longer wearing hazmat suits. It's a stark contrast to the pictures of them loading her onto and off of the plane, where they were in full gear.

During the 3-hour flight, Pham flew in the rear of the plane in a specialized containment tent. Health officials say doctors downgraded her condition early Friday because she was fatigued from the trip.
