Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey tests negative for the virus

We all read in the news about her departure from her comfortable abode to come down to a dreaded ebola infested area to care for the victims.

According to Sky News,Nurse Pauline had tested negative to the virus and there is no fear for her friends or relatives,including coworkers.Her courage courage is amazing.

Pauline Cafferkey, the nurse who contracted Ebola in west Africa, has tested negative for the virus.
She was rushed to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow in an ambulance with a police escort from her home in Cambuslang on Thursday morning.

In a statement the hospital said: "We are pleased to report that tests for the Ebola virus are negative. She remains in a stable condition."

The hospital has stressed that there is no risk to the public. 
Ms Cafferkey, aged 40, was infected with the virus while working in Sierra Leone for Save The Children in 2014.

She has previously been admitted to hospital three times following her return to the UK.
The children's nurse was cleared last month of professional misconduct, after she was accused of concealing her high temperature when she returned from West Africa. 

The Nursing and Midwifery Council had argued that she had "potentially put the public at risk" after being cleared to fly home while in the early stages of Ebola.
And it said she damaged trust in the nursing profession.
