Ebola nurse Pauline is improving
She’s rallying after second diagnosis
Cambuslang nurse Pauline Cafferkey remains seriously ill in hospital this week.
The 39-year-old is being treated in London for Ebola.
However, her condition did improve on Monday when it was announced she was no longer critically ill.
Cambuslang Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey is fighting back a second time against the killer virus.
This week the hospital treating the 39-year-old mercy nurse announced her condition has now improved to “serious but stable”.
Pauline was struck down again 10 days ago and flown to a specialist isolation unit at London’s Royal Free Hospital where her condition initially deteriorated to “critically ill”.
The news she has rallied comes in the week that Pauline was named a winner in the unsung hero section, along with her fellow Ebola crisis volunteers, at the Great Scot Awards.
The honour was handed out at a spectacular event staged in Glasgow by our sister paper The Sunday Mail.
Pauline had intended being present at the glittering ceremony before being diagnosed once more with the deadly bug.
Along with other NHS doctors and nurses from across Scotland, Pauline risked her life to head to Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia to join the battle to halt the largest ever epidemic of Ebola.
