Family and friends of British nurse to be tested for Ebola after she contracts the virus again: Glasgow medic returns to London hospital iso
Looks like our Ebola fears were well founded last Winter. Remember that Glasgow medic/nurse who many of us thought she was having sexual relations with one or more Ebola patients in her UK hospital all because she contracted Ebola in the most unusual ways?

She caught Ebola again. According to the article it sounds like it just happened out of the blue. I think many of us already knew this Ebola outbreak was just taking a simple breather. While everyone who survived the Ebola outbreak would probably be forever infected so while they're out and about, once their Ebola virus became active again they'd become just as dangerously infected as they were the first time around... or more so since the Ebola virus had time to incubate and even mutate further.

Ebola Crisis 2.0 looks to have possibly started, guys!

The family and friends of a British nurse who contracted Ebola last Christmas will have to be tested for the deadly virus after she fell gravely ill for the second time today.

Pauline Cafferkey, 39, is in a 'serious condition' at the Royal Free Hospital in London after the RAF flew her down from Glasgow this morning.

Her second bout of Ebola came ten days after she received a Pride of Britain award from Lenny Henry and Carol Vorderman and met Samantha Cameron in Downing Street the following day.

Miss Cafferkey is now back in the isolation unit where she spent a month and became critically ill after being diagnosed with Ebola last December.

The NHS nurse was working at a GP surgery until a week ago but was not displaying Ebola symptoms so patients and colleagues are not at risk, NHS Lanarkshire said today.

But a small group likely to include her family, friends and those who initially treated her at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow will be tested for the deadly virus.

This morning the NHS nurse was wheeled from a jet at RAF Northolt by medics in hazard suits on a bed surrounded by a protective bubble before police closed roads so her ambulance could rush her to the nearby hospital in Hampstead.
'SNEAKY' EBOLA FINDS PLACES TO HIDE EVEN IF IT IS ALMOST BEATEN
Ebola will find places in the body to survive if the victim recovers

Ebola will find places in the body to survive if the victim recovers

The Ebola virus can linger in bodily tissues even after the person appears to have made a full recovery, according to experts.

Parts of the body such as the eye, central nervous system and testes can harbour the virus, which can also behave in an unpredictable way.

Professor John Edmunds, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said: 'The Ebola virus can occasionally persist for some months in certain tissues within survivors.

'The risk of transmission from these individuals appears to be very low. However, with so many survivors in West Africa now, there is a risk that further outbreaks can be triggered, which is why authorities have to remain very vigilant.'

Dr Ben Neuman, a virologist at the University of Reading, told BBC Radio Scotland he believes the outlook for Pauline Cafferkey is good.

He told the Good Morning Scotland programme: 'The nice news here is that she's beaten the virus once so she can probably beat it again.

'The odds are that she actually has inherited a lucky set of genes and these are probably what protected her the first time and probably what will keep her safe the second time, regardless of any treatment. I think the outlook's good.'

He said scientists are still learning about the virus and its effects.

'It seems that some of the ongoing health problems with people's eys, joints and hair loss are actually caused not by the after-effects of Ebola, but by the small amounts of Ebola which is still residing somewhere in the body,' he said.

'It's surprising and we're just learning how to deal with this.'

Dr Neuman said the aim of any treatment for Ms Cafferkey would be to try to eliminate any last traces of the virus.

He told BBC Radio Scotland: 'The good news is that it's probably not going to be infectious. The virus, once it is removed from the blood once, tends to retreat into the hard-to-access compartments of the body.

'It will hide in places like the back of your eye, in breastmilk, places like that. But we also have some treatments now that are actually shown to work and reduce complications from Ebola and that's due to brave people like Nurse Cafferkey'.

She is said to have developed an 'unusual late complication' as a result of the original Ebola infection and tests have revealed that the virus is still lingering in her body.

Confirming the relapse - and the seriousness of her condition - Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt tweeted: 'Thoughts with Pauline Cafferkey today as she battles Ebola for the second time'.

The nurse was given indefinite leave from her NHS job after she first fell ill with Ebola last December but had returned to work at a health centre in Lanarkshire, just south of Glasgow.

She had been working part time since mid-March as nurse based in Blantyre Health Centre near Glasgow and and had been well when she was last at work on October 1.

NHS Lanarkshire claim this means that no patients or colleagues are at risk.

Consultant in Public Health David Cromie said: 'This is not a new case of ebola and is a complication of her previous illness. The Ebola virus can only be transmitted by direct contact with the blood or bodily fluids of an infected person while they are symptomatic. Pauline was well while at work and there is no wider public health risk for patients treated by her or her staff colleagues.

'In line with normal procedures in cases such as this, a small number of close contacts of Pauline have been identified and will be followed up as a precaution.'

'Together with Pauline's colleagues our thoughts are with Pauline and we wish her a full speedy recovery.'

Ten days ago she was given a Pride of Britain award for her humanitarian work and also met the Prime Minister's wife Samantha Cameron the following day at Downing Street, alongside other winners.

A spokesman for the Department of Health told MailOnline there was a 'next-to zero risk' of anyone at the Pride of Britain awards or Downing Street being infected.

He said: 'She wasn't symptomatic she wasn't displaying any symptoms of Ebola at the awards. She wasn't ill then.

'You can't catch Ebola unless you are in really, really close contact with someone with Ebola.

'Unless someone is displaying the symptoms you cannot catch it.'

Despite recovering from Ebola Pauline had complained about never having fully recovered after leaving hospital in January.

She said that her ordeal meant that her hair was falling out and she had problems with her thyroid.

Government sources have told MailOnline that Miss Cafferkey - who left the Royal Free in January - poses a low risk to the public. It is only spread by body fluids, such as blood, faeces and saliva.

The incubation period - the time between infection and the onset of symptoms - ranges from two days to three weeks.

It is understood that the nurse had taken herself to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Glasgow on Tuesday after feeling unwell.

She was treated in the infectious diseases unit.

Officials then found traces of the virus remained in her body and she was then flown by the RAF from Glasgow to London overnight.

She landed at RAF Northolt at around 6am and was taken off a military aircraft in a bed surrounded by a plastic bubble.

She was then transferred by ambulance to the Royal Free and police stopped traffic to allow a quick transfer to the isolation unit.

Pauline Cafferkey's neighbours in Cambuslang, Lanarkshire, today spoke of their surprise after the nurse was taken into an isolation unit. They said she lived on her own and described her as a private person.

One neighbour said: 'I'm very surprised that she still has Ebola because of the reports coming from London which said she was okay.

'I went to check with the doctors if I had caught Ebola, just in case, but I was relieved to be told it was just the flu.

'She's a very quiet but nice woman.

Another neighbour, who did not wish to be named, added: 'She's a very private person, I've only seen her three times since the first time she got out of hospital.'
