Martin Deahl, 58, who was part of the same volunteer group as the victim and sat next to her on the plane home from Africa, said: ‘The precautions and checks at the airport were shambolic. There seemed to be too few staff and too few rooms or places to put us in.....maybe because it's expensively trained staff think nothing of gallivanting off to Third World hellholes while British people languish in A&E for hours?
Oh, wait. Did I say 'expensively trained'? Maybe we should ask for our money back?
‘When I heard the news about Pauline, I thought it was a false alarm. I thought she had a fever due to something else. [Ebola] cannot be spread by airborne contact so as long as there was no touching, then there should not have been a problem,’ he said.
‘But most of us went out into the community. Some went for a morning run. I went to church myself on Christmas morning and I have no doubt Pauline probably contracted the virus doing something similar.’Jesus Christ!
