As Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey continues to fight for her life, it has emerged that medical staff involved in caring for her when she became ill in Scotland have only now been identified.

Every contact should have been placed in quarantine immediately for their own safety and the safety of others.

If Nigeria can quarantine effectively, so can the UK.

15 medical staff were quarantined at Calabar hospital in Nigeria last week in a suspected Ebola case.

It is scandalous that medical staff have only now been identified. Medical staff are at the highest risk of contracting Ebola if they have to care for an Ebola patient without proper, yes, mandatory, training and equipment. They are also most likely to pass Ebola on to other people if they contract it in the hospital setting.

Ebola is a lethal disease. It is classified as biosecurity level 4 disease. It has to be treated using biosecurity level 4 measures. Those are the regulations. But they are being ignored.

It is scandalous that the medical staff in Scotland have not been offered an organized quarantine. The choice they face should not between no help at all, or a dangerous and unlicensed vaccine. This is terrible!

Proper screening and diagnostic protocols are also obviously not in place. A GP failed to identify her symptoms as being related to Ebola.
