UK nurse Pauline Cafferkey reflects on Ebola ordeal

The first Briton to be diagnosed with Ebola in the UK has been given the all clear and discharged from hospital.

Nurse Pauline Cafferkey spent almost a month in a high level isolation unit and was in a critical condition for two weeks.

Speaking to the BBC in her first broadcast interview, Ms Cafferkey, 39, admitted she had felt like "giving up" as her condition became critical.

She also said she had no sense of time while in hospital and could not remember an entire week when the virus took hold.
