"Cured" Ebola Patient In Critical Condition

Independent: Ebola nurse Pauline Cafferkey's rapid decline after being 'cured' leaves experts staggered
Doctors have said she is suffering an “unusual late complication” of her previous infection. Ebola virus can linger for months in survivors without causing serious ill effects or infection risk and is also known to cause long-term health problems in many patients.

However, medical understanding of the disease’s after-effect is limited due to the relatively low number of historic cases.

...“I am not aware from the scientific literature of a case where Ebola has been associated with what we can only assume as life threatening complications after someone has initially recovered, and certainly not so many months after,” he said.
It's not in the literature! Perhaps they should have done more research before bringing ebola patients into uninfected countries.
