The British volunteer nurse who has contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone has been named after being evacuated to the UK.
William Pooley, 29, is the first confirmed case of a Briton contracting the virus during the recent outbreak.
He was named by Dr Robert Garry, an American scientist who worked at the same hospital as him in the west Africa country.
Dr Garry said he was told by a university colleague that the test results for Mr Pooley were received in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Mr Pooley was working at a hospice in the capital Freetown but moved to Kenema when he heard that other healthcare workers at KGH had died from Ebola.
