A Spanish nurse’s aide, Teresa Romero Ramos, who contracted Ebola while helping a patient, has been cured of the disease. Her most recent test results show a low percentage of the virus in her blood stream. Three samples of her blood were transported to the Spanish CDC, at the National Mirco-Biology Institute for observation. The,44. year old nurses assistant stated she wiped a glove on her face when treating a missionary priest. After he died she came into his room several times to gather his things. The CDC is monitoring the possible 15 people she came into contact with after she was exposed to Ebola. Her husband, Javier Limon is on that list but so far none of the patients being monitored have shown signs of the illness.

“Today I’m very happy, because it can be said that Teresa has overcome this illness,” said Romero’s husband, Javier Limon.

Although doctors are confident she’ll recover, Ramos will stay at Madrid’s Carlos III hospital for further testing and monitoring. She was rushed to the hospital two weeks ago, when she reported a severe fever. During treatment she received a blood transfusion from a nun in West Africa who survived the disease and took the antiviral drug, Favipiravir as per her doctor’s request. Madrid’s Carlos Hospital has received the experimental drug Zmab, though she was not required to take it.

An Ebola expert Luis Enjuanes, spoke about Ramos’ recovery, with CNN

“The last two measurements were in ‘background’ levels, and there is no significant statistical difference with negative results. If for three times, throughout one week, you are background, background, background, in practical terms it means you don’t have the virus. It means she’s making her own protection, so any virus fooling around probably will be destroyed or neutralized.”

Reports say that Teresa is in ‘excellent” condition. That she is able to walk around and eat almost anything.
