Nigerian Doctor Who Treated Ebola Victim Patrick Sawyer Tests Positive For the Virus

Posted in: ,

The doctor who treated Liberian Ebola victim Patrick Sawyer while he was receiving treatment in a Lagos hospital has tested positive for the virus. This is the second confirmed case in Lagos.

"This new case is one of the doctors who attended to the Liberian Ebola patient who died," said Health Minister Onyebuchi Chukwu.

The Minister of Health revealed this today Monday August 4th and also said that eight people who had first degree contact with the Liberian have been quarantined and are under strict observation.

I pity health workers who are really in the frontlines of pushing back this menace. Their families are in danger too. And from there, anyone can be exposed. God help us.
