BETHESDA, MD (ANS) — CBN News’ George Thomas revealed Oct. 24 that he has placed himself in a 21-day ebola quarantine after reporting fromGeorge Thomas Liberia.

On his Facebook page, Thomas said, “I am 99.99 percent sure I’m Ebola-free but out of an abundance of caution for others, I’ve checked into an Ebola quarantine apartment in an undisclosed foreign location. Not sure how this all works, but I’m going to miss my family.”

Meanwhile, Dallas nurse Nina Pham, who became the first person to contract Ebola on U.S. soil, is now free of the deadly virus and returned home to Dallas on Oct. 25.

Pham was discharged from a special facility at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

In a news conference Oct. 24 outside the facility, she thanked her family, God, and her medical team, and said she is looking forward to being reunited with her pet dog.

“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.”

She also thanked Dr. Kent Brantly, the American Christian physician with Samaritan’s Purse, who also survived Ebola, for donating his plasma to her while Nina Pham she was sick.

“The nation saw a cheerful and composed Pham, dressed in a bright turquoise top and matching necklace, when she strode to a bank of microphones moments after Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said she was free of the virus,” said CNN.

Later, President Barack Obama met Pham in the Oval Office and gave her a big hug.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Pham, 26, is one of two nurses who contracted the Ebola virus while caring for Liberian Thomas Duncan at Texas Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas.

The news came one day after a doctor returning from Guinea tested positive for Ebola in New York City.

At least 4,800 people have already died from the virus – and at least 9,900 cases have been recorded. But the World Health Organization (WHO) says the true numbers may be three times higher.
