BREAKING: Adedavoh, female doctor infected by Patrick Sawyer dies of Ebola virus in Lagos


A female medical doctor at First Consultant Hospital, Lagos, Dr. Ameyo Stella Adedavoh, has died from the Ebola virus disease, a source at the hospital has told Sundiata Post. The source said the Minister of Health , Prof Onyebuchi Chukwu or any other official of the ministry of health would soon make an announcement of the latest death, but might not reveal the identity in keeping with the pattern of briefings since the outbreak of the disease.

Tha source told Sundiata Post that Sawyer had told Adedavoh that he had malaria, for which he was initially tested. Later he was tested for HIV/AIDS but both tests turned negative until Ebola was suspected and when tested for the dreaded disease, it turned out positive. The source said by then it was too late for Adedavoh to take precaution because Sawyer had been stooling and vomiting. It was in the process of managing Sawyer in that critical state that she got infected. The source said Adedavoh had been in coma for some days before finally giving up on Tuesday. Survived by a son, she is the first doctor to die from the disease. Three others – two nurses and ECOWAS proocol officer – have died from Ebola while five others have survived the disease and have been discharged from hospital. [eap_ad_4]
