Ebola-hit UK nurse in ‘critical’ condition

A British nurse who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone was in a “critical” condition on Sunday, locked in isolation inside a specialist London hospital. Pauline Cafferkey’s health has taken a turn for the worse in recent days, the Royal Free Hospital said in a statement.  “The condition of Pauline Cafferkey has gradually deteriorated over the past two days and is now critical,” the Royal Free Hospital in London said in a statement. On Wednesday, doctors had said the 39-year-old Scot was sitting up in bed, reading and talking to staff from inside her isolation tent in the hospital. They said Cafferkey, who was working with the charity Save the Children in Sierra Leone, had agreed to have blood plasma treatment and take an experimental anti-viral drug.
