Britain's first Ebola victim may have caught the deadly virus by playing with a one-year-old boy whose mother had died, a medical colleague said.
William Pooley's supervisor Josephine Sellu said he had developed a bond with an orphaned baby boy named Sellu Borbor.
She said: "Pooley and some other nurses fell in love with the boy and would play with him in their free time."
She added that like other health workers, Pooley initially took precautions when handling the infant after his mother had died from the virus.
But after the boy he tested negative for the disease, Pooley had later played freely with him.
However, the youngster later tested positive for the virus, which he is thought to have caught from his mother's breast milk.
He died on August 24, the same day Pooley was diagnosed with the disease.
UK trials of a vaccine for the Ebola virus began today - but some experts complain that the response has been a long time coming.
