Upon landing at Heathrow on December 28th 2014, after a long stint in West Africa, Ms Cafferkey was officially diagnosed with the Ebola virus.
Luckily, however, she survived the virus and all its complications after a period of illness spanning months.
But what should've been a heartwarming story about overcoming tragedy, has now turned into a catfight between was-desperate medical professionals and the ethics code they decided to stray from.
Pauline Cafferkey was my friend and someone I cared about and was really worried she might die.
This is because Dr Hannah Ryan, another one of the volunteers from Sierra Leone, chose to ignore one of the warning signs of the Ebola virus, putting the mass public of the UK in a very precarious danger - as melodramatic as that sounds.
