Cambuslang Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey has been discharged from hospital after being treated for a third time.
The Royal Free Hospital in London confirmed the news on Sunday afternoon.
A statement on their website read: “Pauline Cafferkey has today, Sunday, February28, been discharged from the care of the Royal Free Hospital following her admission due to a complication related to her previous infection by the Ebola virus.
“We can confirm that Pauline is not infectious. The Ebola virus can only be transmitted by direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected person while they are symptomatic.”
The 40- year- old first contracted Ebola in December 2014 while working at the Save the Children treatment centre in Kerry Town in Sierra Leone. She was diagnosed after returning to Glasgow from the west African country via London.
Pauline was successfully treated for Ebola hemorrhagic fever at the Royal Free Hospital and discharged in January 2015.
But on October 9, last year she was flown from Glasgow back to the Royal Free by a military plane after an “unusual late complication” caused her to fall ill again. She had to be readmitted to the hospital’s high-level isolation treatment unit after the virus, which had lingered in her brain, caused life-threatening meningitis.
