A Scottish nurse being treated at the Royal Free Hospital for a late complication of the Ebola virus is no longer in critical condition, the team treating her has said.
Pauline Cafferkey, who was successfully treated for the disease after being admitted to the hospital in Hampstead back in December, had her condition changed from “critical” to “serious but stable”.
She has been receiving treatment from the Royal Free’s isolation unit after developing an “unusual late complication” of the Ebola infection.
She was transported from Glasgow in a military aircraft under supervision on October 9.
Ms Cafferkey has been originally diagnosed with Ebola in December after returning to Glasgow from Sierra Leone, via London.

Following her diagnosis, Ms Cafferkey received an experimental anti-viral drug and blood from survivors of the Ebola disease.
