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.
