Ebola crisis: Infected Spanish nurse 'may have touched face'

A doctor in Madrid says the Spanish nurse infected with Ebola remembers touching her face with her gloves after treating a dying priest.

The nurse, Teresa Romero, is the first person known to have contracted the deadly virus outside West Africa.

She treated two Spanish missionaries who died from Ebola earlier this year.

Earlier, a World Health Organization adviser warned that more Ebola cases could be expected among medical staff, even in developed countries.

Some 3,400 people have died in the outbreak - mostly in West Africa.
