ATLANTA (AP) - Emory University Hospital officials say tests no longer detect the Ebola virus in a nurse being treated at its hospital near Atlanta.

Emory said in a statement Friday afternoon that Amber Vinson is making good progress, and tests no longer detect the virus in her blood.

Emory said it had no discharge date for Vinson yet, as she continues to receive supportive care.

Vinson was one of two nurses diagnosed with Ebola after they treated an Ebola-infected patient at a Dallas hospital.

The other nurse, Nina Pham, was released from a Maryland hospital on Friday after doctors declared her free of the virus.

Pham said she felt "fortunate and blessed to be standing here today," as she left the National Institutes of Health's hospital outside Washington.
