The Spanish nursing assistant infected with Ebola is “stable”, hospital officials said, hours after authorities described her condition as critical.

A spokeswoman for the Carlos III hospital in Madrid said Teresa Romero remains in a serious condition but could give no further details.

Madrid regional government health chief Javier Rodriquez said yesterday that Ms Romero was in a critical condition after taking a turn for the worse.

She was the first person known to have caught the disease outside the outbreak zone in west Africa. She contracted the virus while helping treat a Spanish missionary who became infected in west Africa and later died.
