Pauline Cafferkey has today (Sunday 28 February) been discharged from the care of the Royal Free Hospital following her admission due to a complication related to her previous infection by the Ebola virus.

This was Cafferkey’s third hospitalization since contracting EVD–the initial infection, a bout with meningitis related to Ebola virus and the latest admission.
