UK Ebola case: 'No significant risk to public'

A health worker who was diagnosed with Ebola after returning to Scotland from Sierra Leone is being transferred to a specialist treatment centre in London.

The woman, who travelled to Glasgow via Casablanca and London Heathrow, is being taken to the Royal Free Hospital.

Speaking to the BBC, Paul Cosford from Public Health England said that the patient was not showing severe symptoms prior to diagnosis - so the case did not "put anyone in the public domain at any significant risk".
