The first British national to contract Ebola in West Africa arrived in London on Sunday for treatment.

William Pooley, the 29 year-old health worker volunteered to serve in the Ebola treatment ward in Sierra Leone, during which he contracted the virus. He was flown to Royal Free Hospital in London after being evacuated on a special RAF C-17 plane.

Infected patients are flown in quarantine planes equipped with an Aeromedical Biological Containment System. With the HEPA-filtered device that provides negative air pressure, pathogens are kept from entering the cabin,

Medical staffers are also fully supplied with PVC coveralls, special filtered respirator and other necessary precautionary instruments. As the patient lands and is placed in a special stretcher sealed with plastics, they are allowed to tend to the patient through the built in gloves along the sides.

Scientists are still looking for cure for Ebola, but by treating the symptoms, paying attention to the patient’s vital organs, and proper hydration, there is a chance of survival.

According to the World Health Organization, the number of infected patients has reached 2,615, out of which, 1,427 victims have died of the deadly virus.

Александр Морган says:

That person who brought the patient over should be shot because maybe shes willing to die but we are not 

yoyowatwat says:

  i guess its best for him to be with his family if hes dieing but they should deal with it where he caught it. but thats there plan i guess to spread it.

Jason King says:

This guy should not have been allowed back into the UK until he was cured or the virus had run its course and he survived. If they wanted to treat him they should have taken all their shit to Sierra Leone and treated him there. Now the whole of the UK is at risk cause of one person.

Ward Nine says:

Rolf Harris can entertain the Syrian troops as well 

Iam Sir Z says:
