“We are overjoyed to announce that, as of yesterday evening, officials at Emory University Hospital and the Centers for Disease Control (and Prevention) are no longer able to detect virus in her body,” the family said in a statement hours after Vinson spoke with her mother, Debra Berry.
She said her daughter, a nurse at Texas Health Presbyterian, has been cleared for transfer from isolation at Emory. She remains under treatment at the hospital’s unit for serious communicable diseases.
“Amber and our family are ecstatic to receive this latest report on her condition,” Berry said.
While acknowledging that Vinson would require further treatment, the statement did not indicate when she might be released.
