    British Ebola nurse returns to Sierra Leone


    William Pooley, the British nurse who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, will land in Freetown tonight and return to work at an isolation unit run by UK medical staff tomorrow.

    He said he could not stand “idly by” and watch more Africans die from the outbreak, which has claimed more than 4,500 lives.

    “I chose to go before and it was the right thing to do then and it’s still the right thing to do now,” Pooley told the Guardian. “I’m excited to get back out there. I want to get back to work.”
