    British nurse who recovered from Ebola back in hospital

    LONDON (Reuters) - A Scottish nurse, who recovered from Ebola but then suffered life-threatening complications from the virus persisting in her brain, has been admitted to hospital for a third time, officials said on Tuesday.

    Pauline Cafferkey contracted Ebola in December 2014 when she was working in a treatment facility in Sierra Leone at the height of an epidemic of the disease which swept through three countries in West Africa.

    Cafferkey was being transferred on Tuesday from the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow to the Royal Free Hospital in London, which has a unit that was specially set up to deal with any Ebola cases in Britain.

    "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," the hospital said in a statement.

    "She will now be treated by the hospital's infectious diseases team under nationally agreed guidelines."

    Ebola is a complete joke.

    10,000 people are killed every year from dunk driving and that gets no press compared to Ebola, Zika, Bird Flu and even domestic terrorism. How did this country's priorities get so out of wack?
