The hospital Carlos III de Madrid where the priests were treated is reported to have had extreme protective measures in place including two sets of overalls, gloves and goggles.

The nurse is in a stable condition and has been moved from the Alcorcon hospital to a specialised unit at the Carlos III hospital.

The other members of the medical team are being monitored.

So another medical person with protective gear gets it

gives a bit of credence that this bug is something different than the traditional ebola..........trained medical staff are getting it, but a photographer whose job is to shoot things from afar.....the photographer bothers me more, these are paranoid guys that make an art to go into hazardous environments, and come out unscathed......I could buy it if he went in shooting something else, and it got him out of the blue....But he went in knowing the threat, I just can't buy it that he was careless.

PS, either this bug is worse than they are telling us, or the photog is a setup....something just isn't right about what we are being told about the entire situation.

Nurse husband is in quarantine and two other people as well is being monitored

(Reuters) - Four people, including the nurse who tested for Ebola on Monday, were hospitalized and being monitored over suspicion of potential contagion of the deadly disease, Spain's health authorities said on Tuesday. Officials for Madrid's health system told a press conference those hospitalized included the nurse's husband, a traveler from one affected country and another health worker. They also said the nurse, who did not leave Madrid during her vacations, was currently being treated with drip using antibodies from previous infected patients.



It seems that nurse too a vacation after second ebola case she treated. Information where she went on her holiday is not out yet.

just heard on BBC news that the nurse only entered the deceased priests room on two occasions, once to clean and once after his death to take away soiled items. Seems as reported elsewhere she may have been an auxiliary nurse, and they are saying that even though she was wearing protective clothing, she may have contacted the virus whilst de-suiting.

More concerning information emerges...

El Mundo reported that it was the nurse who asked to be tested for Ebola, having to insist repeatedly on being tested before it was done on Monday.

While staff at the Alcorcón hospital were waiting for the test results, the nurse remained in a bed in the emergency room, separated only by curtains from other patients, hospital staff told El Mundo.

Their version of events clashes with that of health authorities, who have said the patient was isolated from the first moment.
