DALLAS (Reuters) – Ebola-infected Texas nurse Nina Pham on Thursday left the Dallas hospital where she has been receiving treatment for the virus this week for a flight to a National Institutes of Health facility in Maryland, officials said.

Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, where Pham, 26, worked and has been receiving treatment, will fly out of Love Field in Dallas, it said, asking commuters “who might pass her ambulance to honk their horns in support.”
