Condition improves

Makes Statement

Doctors say Cafferkey has made a “significant improvement” and is recovering from meningitis caused by the Ebola virus. She is still bed-bound but is talking freely and able to eat a little.

I’m really pleased to tell you that in the last few days she has made a significant improvement.

Doctors say she had a “long recovery ahead of her” and will remain in hospital for some time.
