Nurse Justina Ejelonu Who Came in Contact with Patrick Sawyer Dies at 25

Posted in: , ,

25-year-old Obi Justina Ejelonu has died. She was one of the nurses who attended to Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer, the first Ebola victim in Nigeria.

Sahara Reporters confirmed the story through a telephone call to her family. They say she passed away this morning.

Ejelonu was quarantine in Lagos, along with several others who had contact with Patrick Sawyer. Justina has spoken out about her experience and I was among the first to blog about the campaign for the Zmapp experimental drug to be sent to Nigeria using her comments and picture.

It is unfortunate that she was not among the ones to beat Ebola.

May her soul rest in peace
