Texas nurse Nina Pham in 'fair' condition after transfer

The condition of US nurse Nina Pham, who contracted Ebola after treating a patient with the virus, is "fair" and she is "stable" after being transferred from Dallas to a special clinical studies unit in Maryland.

Doctors at the hospital in Maryland said patient confidentiality meant they could not explain why Nina Pham's condition is fair.

Doctors at the hospital, which is outside of Washington DC, confirmed at a news conference that Ms Pham - who has been referred to as 'Nurse 1' in media reports - is "resting comfortably".

Ms Pham is one of two nurses in Texas who contracted the virus while treating an Ebola patient. The other, Amber Vinson, is continuing her treatment in Atlanta.
