British Recovered Ebola Patient to Return to Africa


The first Briton to contract Ebola, William Pooley, 29, is planning to return to Sierra Leone, where he was infected in order to help fight the disease. He  was treated in London after being flown out of Sierra Leone, when he was diagnosed with Ebola.

Care worker Pooley was “impatient” to return and that it was likely he was now immune to the deadly illness. He said, “I’m quite impatient to get back doing what I know needs to done,” adding that,”I feel like I’ve left things undone, having left prematurely. And I know there’s a lot of work to do out there, and we need to get out there and do it.”
