Pics: Obama meets & hugs first nurse to contract Ebola in the US

Nurse Nina Pham, the first person to contract Ebola in the US met with president Obama at The White this afternoon where she received a hug from him.

Nina, who contracted Ebola while treating Liberian Thomas Eric Duncan at the Emory University hospital in Texas, is now free from the virus after being successfully treated at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda. When President Obama heard she was Ebola-free, he sent word to her asking if he could hug her and she agreed to meet him. Aww...(Photo credit: White House Press)

Wrong info, Linda! The nurse did not contract Ebola while treating late Duncan at the "Emory University hospital in Texas." She contracted Ebola while treating late Duncan at the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.

Thywill Okpara said...

Such a leadership spirit was also shown by Gov Fashola; may not be exactly hugging but, it goes a long way to tackle stigimatization.

Emory hospital is not in Texas.it's in Atlanta....Linda check for correct information before you post.

lindalinda i think Emory hospital is in Atlanta and not in Texas..

ary said...

That is the way to go! Make your people less afraid, show them that their fears are unfounded, put yourself in harms way. That is a mark of a TRUE leader, not these idiots we have here roaming the corridors of power like rats outta the latrine! That hug alone has 'verified' that nurse and people wouldn't shun her, as the President has hugged her, thus she must be ebola free!

Chidiebere Nweke said...

I bet after this hug..he will be medically checked..lol Americans no the joke with there president oo..

Abeg free this my Smallie o, where your sense of humour?

And rightly so. Who asked Fashola to host EDV survivors in his office? It's called LEADERSHIP. He who don got it don got it. Chew on that mate.

Nice gesture....

The closest Gov Fashola came to our own when they visited him was a group photograph. No hugs, no handshakes, as reported. Just in case d thing never go finish... lol
