Ebola Kills Doctor In Port Harcourt. 70 Quarantined
A new case of Ebola has been reported in Nigeria, this time in Port Harcourt Rivers State. A doctor who was said to have secretly treated a diplomat who had contact with the index case, Liberian-American Patrick Sawyer, died of Ebola on Friday 22nd August.
The diplomat is still alive, but the doctor’s wife has also fallen ill and has been quarantined in Port Harcourt alongside 70 other people.
Reports have it that the diplomat who was part of the team that met Patrick Sawyer in Lagos, evaded the Nigerian federal government surveillance as he took off to Port Harcourt for treatment.
The doctor who is still yet to be named, took him to a hotel for treatment. The doctor's hospital, Good Heart Hospital in Rivers State, has been shut down. The unnamed hotel, where the secret treatment took place, has also been shut down.
The Minister of Health and the Rivers State government are expected to make a statement on the incident tomorrow.
