The British nurse Pauline Cafferkey, 39, who was infected with Ebola while working in Sierra Leone in December 2014 has been admitted to hospital for the third time, NHS officials have said.
She spent almost a month in an isolation unit at the Royal Free Hospital in London and was released after making a recovery but fell ill again in October last year and was again treated at the Royal Free for meningitis caused by Ebola.
At one point Cafferkey who is from South Lanarkshire, was described by doctors as being critically ill, but was discharged in November and transferred to Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth university hospital to convalesce.
She is now undergoing treatment at the Glasgow hospital.
An NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde spokesman said: “Under routine monitoring by the infectious diseases unit, Pauline Cafferkey has been admitted to hospital for further investigations.”
