Ebola healthcare workers questioned over Cafferkey case

Pauline Cafferkey, the public health worker who contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone, is thought to be one of several healthcare staff being investigated over suggestions she may have known she was unwell before she left Africa.

The Scottish nurse, who had been volunteering for Save the Children, was diagnosed with the virus when she returned to Glasgow on 28 December.

Her temperature had been tested seven times at Heathrow airport before she flew to Scotland.

Ms Cafferkey is one of three nurses and two doctors being investigated after information was passed to Public Health England.
