Amber Vinson's Mother Says Daughter is Doing Well

The mother of a nurse infected with the Ebola virus says her daughter is doing well and the family is relieved new guidelines for treating patients with the disease are now in place.

Debra Berry made the comments during an interview that aired Tuesday on ABC's "Good Morning America."

Berry's daughter, Amber Vinson, is being cared for in a specialized unit at Emory University Hospital near Atlanta.

Berry said the family is "very confident" Vinson is receiving good care at Emory. Vinson was part of the team that cared for Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas. Another nurse there also became infected.

Duncan died on Oct. 8.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines Monday aimed at protecting health workers treating Ebola patients.
