SPAIN’S Ebola nurse has admitted she may have touched her face with her gloves after treating two repatriated priests, who both died of the virus.
Teresa Romero Ramos – the first person to have contracted the virus outside West Africa – was part of a team of about 30 nurses to treat the two missionaries in August and September.
The 40-year-old auxiliary nurse is still in quarantine in Madrid’s Carlos III hospital, along with her husband and three other people.
A fifth person, said to be a friend and colleague of Ramos, has also been admitted with a slight fever.
In total, more than 50 people in Spain are now under observation.
