Ebola: Another Lagos Nurse Test Positive
Date Posted: 11/Aug/2014
Another Lagos nurse has tested positive to Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) 22 days after the first case of the virus was recorded.
 
The newly wedded nurse was among the people that had direct contact to the importer of the virus into Nigeria, the late Liberian man, Patrick Sawyer.
According to the Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, her husband is among the 177 people placed under surveillance.
 
He revealed that nine have so far developed EVD, thus bringing the total number of cases in Nigeria to ten — two of these two have died — that is the Liberian and the nurse while eight are alive and currently on treatment.
