Newly Married Nurse Tests Positive To Ebola Virus In Lagos


Deadly Ebola Virus Disease, EVD, has caused and still causing trouble for many families. The Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu, has revealed that another Lagos nurse has tested positive to Ebola.

This sad development is coming 22 days after the first first case of the virus was recorded. The minister said the newly married nurse was among those that had direct contact with the late Liberian man, Patrick Sawyer, who is said to be the one who imported the disease into Nigeria.

  Unfortunately, before the Nurse was diagnosed, she had gone home and slept with her new husband. So, her husband is now among the 177 people that government has placed under strict surveillance in Lagos.

The Health Minister added that, so far, nine persons have developed EVD, thus bringing the total number of the confirmed Ebola cases in Nigeria to 10. Two persons have died as a result of the virus in Nigeria.

All those who had primary contact with late Sawyer had been placed on either surveillance or quarantined.

The minister confirmed that the Ebola had so far been restricted to Lagos as it had not spread to other states.

chai!!! We wish you quick recovery
