UK EBOLA NURSE ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL FOR THE THIRD TIME IN MEDICAL PUZZLE


UK Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey has been readmitted for a third time to a special London hospital for treatment.

In October she was readmitted for a second time to a special hospital after the Ebola virus allegedly caused her to develop meningitis.

As far as I know, it was the first time ever meningitis was reported as a side effect of Ebola.

Now, she is back in a special hospital receiving Ebola treatment for a third time.

What is going on?

From the Guardian

Pauline Cafferkey, the British nurse who contracted Ebola in west Africa, is being transferred to the specialist unit at the Royal Free hospital in London for the third time since her return.

Cafferkey, 39, who is said to be in a stable condition, had been admitted to Glasgow’s Queen Elizabeth University hospital but on Tuesday afternoon an RAF aircraft landed at Glasgow airport to transport her to London.

A spokesman for the Royal Free said: “We can confirm that Pauline Cafferkey is being transferred to the Royal Free hospital due to a late complication from her previous infection by the Ebola virus. She will now be treated by the hospital’s infectious diseases team under nationally agreed guidelines.
