Ebola: Fears grow that virus is spreading beyond West Africa

In Northern Australia there is an anxious wait for a 57-year-old nurse who may have contracted the deadly Ebola virus.

It comes after a man in the US died from the virus and a nurse in Spain was diagnosed with Ebola.

The 44-year-old nurse was in a stable condition, but there are reports that her health is worsening.

The cases have heightened fears that the deadly virus could be spreading beyond West Africa.
