Another Lagos Doctor Tests Positive + One More Nurse Dies


Another nurse, 35year old Justina Obi Ejelonu, (pictured above) who attended to late Liberian Patrick Sawyer while he was ill at the First Consultant hospital in Lagos, has died.

According to Sahara reporters, her relatives called to inform them of her demise in the early hours of today. Ms. Ejelonu had been kept in a quarantine facility in Lagos and was very vocal in the campaign for the release of the ZMapp experimental drug to Nigerian Ebola disease patients. 

Justina was quarantined at the B Ward, a male ward which is now referred to as the Ebola Ward of the Yaba Mainland General Hospital. May her soul rest in peace.

Also The Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, today in Abuja said another Nigerian doctor has tested positive to the deadly Ebola disease. The said doctor was one of those who treated Sawyer.
