Third Hospitalization for U.K. Nurse Who Had Ebola

A U.K. nurse who recovered from Ebola has been hospitalized for the third time in just over a year.

Pauline Cafferkey contracted Ebola while working in Sierra Leone in December 2014. She was diagnosed after she returned home and spent a few weeks in the hospital. But she was hospitalized again last October, CNN reported.

The Scottish nurse was released in December, but is now in Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow "for further investigations," according to a hospital statement released Tuesday.

The hospital did not say why or when Cafferkey was admitted, but noted she is "under routine monitoring by the Infectious Diseases Unit," CNN reported.

"To protect patient confidentiality, we will not be publishing regular updates on this patient's condition," the hospital added.
