Ebola patient posed 'very low risk' to other passengers

Chief Medical Officer Dame Sally Davies has said that Pauline Cafferkey, the Glasgow nurse who has contracted Ebola, posed a "very low risk of infectivity for anyone else" on the flights she travelled on.

Professor Dame Sally Davies says she believes procedures to contain the Ebola case remain "robust"
