UK Military Health Worker Contracts Ebola

A member of British military personnel has tested positive for Ebola in Sierra Leone.

The unidentified woman - who was working at the Kerry Town facility southwest of the capital Freetown - is due to be flown home by the RAF after being assessed, Sky News understands.

Her next of kin have been informed about her illness.

A Public Health England spokesperson said: "An investigation into how the military worker was exposed to the virus is currently under way and tracing of individuals in recent contact with the diagnosed worker is being undertaken.

Hope she recovers well
The Royal Free, London is the UK's primary ebola treatment specialist (as previously reported by our media) so she's going to be in the best place available.

Best wishes for a swift recovery....
I know this story is in the media, but we all know that they don't always know all the facts, and as well as just making stuff up, they also trawl sites like ARRSE looking for information.

Please respect the privacy and confidentiality of the patient and family, and refrain from posting speculation, informed guessing or anything else that might be of interest to journos.
