The nursing assistant Teresa Romero, first person infected with the Ebola virus in Europe, left the Madrid hospital this Wednesday where she remained hospitalized since last October 6, after being released.
“I do not know what went wrong, I don’t even know if something fáciles … I just know I have no grudge, no reproaches but if my transmission is good for something, to better study the disease and if it can help find a vaccine or my blood serves to cure other people, I’m here,” said Romero in a statement read to the press.
Romero, 44, who entered on 6 October, was infected after assisting a Spanish missionary affected by this hemorrhagic fever, repatriated from Sierra Leone on September 22 and who died on the 25th.
The nursing assistant today recognized the value of the Spanish healthcare and sanitary work, although described as “disastrous” the policy management of this health crisis experienced by Spain.
Meanwhile, doctors who treated Romero stressed that the patient can do a “completely normal” life, but she will need enough time to get the “full recovery.”
