Ebola patient Pauline Cafferkey is receiving an experimental anti-viral drug and blood from survivors of the disease, doctors in London have said.
Specialists at the Royal Free Hospital in Hampstead, where the nurse is being treated, did not name the drug.
Dr Michael Jacobs said Ms Cafferkey was in isolation and was sitting up in bed, talking and reading.
As the disease has no known cure and is unpredictable, Dr Jacobs said they would know more in a week’s time.
He said Ms Cafferkey had agreed to all the treatments and her family had been to see her.
