BREAKING: Ebola Case ‘Confirmed in Glasgow’

A female healthcare worker in Glasgow, Scotland has been diagnosed with Ebola after returning from Sierra Leone last night. The worker arrived at Glasgow Airport at 11.30 last night on a British Airways flight from Casablanca.

She was taken to hospital this morning after feeling ill and placed in isolation at 7.50am, with the diagnosis confirmed this evening. NHS Scotland has said that because she was diagnosed in the very early stages of the disease, the threat to others is low.

The healthcare worker is currently being treated by the Brownlee Unit for Infectious Diseases at Gartnavel Hospital.

Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said: “Our first thoughts at this time must be with the patient diagnosed with Ebola and their friends and family. I wish them a speedy recovery.

“Scotland has been preparing for this possibility from the beginning of the outbreak in West Africa and I am confident that we are well prepared.”
