Nurse who contracted Ebola after treating Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian has been named as 26-year-old Nina Pham.

The young nurse became infected due to a ‘breach of protocol’, CDC officials have said, though what this breach was, if it did indeed occur, has not been specified.

A new survey conducted among 1,900 nurses across several US medical facilities has revealed that an astonishing 76% have not been informed by their hospitals of any policy regarding the potential admission of Ebola patients.
