A Scottish nurse who was treated for Ebola in 2014 is to remain in hospital for a second day after she was admitted on Thursday.
Forty year-old Pauline Cafferkey is reported to be in stable condition and would only be examined further while in hospital, even though she tested negative to Ebola.
Cafferkey has been admitted four times in hospital ever since she returned from Sierra Leone where she worked as part of a UK team at the Kerry Town Ebola treatment centre.
The BBC reported National Health Service, Greater Glasgow as saying; “Due to Ms Cafferkey’s past medical history, appropriate precautionary measures were taken whilst further investigations were carried out.
“We are pleased to report that tests for the Ebola virus are negative. She remains in a stable condition in the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital. We want to repeat our previous reassurance that there is no risk to the public,”
She spent almost a month in isolation at the Royal Free hospital in London at the beginning of 2015 after the virus was detected when she arrived back in the UK.
Ms Cafferkey was later discharged after apparently making a full recovery, but she was readmitted in October 2015 after it was discovered that the virus was still present in her body.
