Our congratulations to Bentley. The young Cavalier King Charles Spaniel will soon be going home after 21 days in quarantine and passing three tests for Ebola.
Bentley’s owner, Dallas nurse Nina Pham, was released from her own quarantine at the National Institutes for Health in Maryland last week after being cured of the deadly disease. Immediately after her release, she said that she was looking forward to seeing Bentley again, but officials told her she had to wait. The incubation period for Ebola is 21 days, and Bentley hadn’t quite been under observation for that long. Tomorrow, that 21 days is up.
