A Scottish nurse who fell ill after returning from Sierra Leone has been flown from Glasgow to a specialist infectious diseases unit in London.
Meanwhile, according to a Sky news report, a second person in Scotland is being tested for Ebola, although the healthcare worker recently returned from one of the affected countries in West Africa is said to be “at low risk” of having the virus.
Another patient at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro, has been placed in isolation and is also being tested for Ebola.
The Scottish nurse who has become the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the UK is to receive specialist medical care at the Royal Free Hospital.
The woman returned to Scotland after a spell working in Sierra Leone and arrived at Glasgow Airport on a British Airways flight at around 11.30pm on Sunday.
The patient – understood to have been volunteering for Save The Children – was admitted to hospital early on Monday after feeling unwell and was placed into isolation at 7.50am.
She is said to be in a stable condition.
