Pauline Cafferkey, the nurse who suffered complications from the Ebola infection she contracted while volunteering in west Africa, is now critically ill, the Royal Free hospital in London has said.

“We are sad to announce that Pauline Cafferkey’s condition has deteriorated and she is now critically ill. Pauline is being treated for Ebola in the high-level isolation unit at the Royal Free hospital,” a statement said.

While there have been reports of the virus lingering in the eyes of survivors and of transmission through semen, Cafferkey is the first person known to have a life-threatening recurrence of Ebola viral disease – though it is entirely possible that other survivors in west Africa may have fallen ill in the same way but without coming to public attention.

Cafferkey’s illness has taken doctors by surprise. Jonathan Ball, professor of molecular virology at the University of Nottingham, said it was known the virus could linger, “but this is frankly staggering.
