Dallas Nurse Nina Pham beats Ebola, meets Obama

It was just a few weeks ago that a young nurse in Dallas contracted the deadly Ebola virus. Now 13 days after testing positive, Nina Pham has been declared free of the deadly virus.

"I feel fortunate and blessed to be standing here today," she said. "Throughout this ordeal, I have put my faith in God and my medical team."

Before she went home, she met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office.

Erin Burnett has more.

    The nurse from Maine, should be quite ashamed of herself. Being a registered nurse myself, I would never put my family or the general public at risk. She should know better, considering she claims to be a caring individual. She went to Africa to do a good deed there, and we all respect her for that, but for God's sake, just comply for 21 days to prevent the American people from possibly contracting this deadly sickness. DON'T BE SO SELFISH!!! Thanks to Christie for sticking to his guns!!!!

    I'm just 15 years old , but I've got a plan how to defeat the ebola epidemic. The ebola virus broke out in west Africa. Warm countries. And the most viruses which broke out in warm countries are not proof against coldness. So I would try to see what happens when ebola comes together with a cold climate. I hope someone reads that.
    greetings from Germany
