It has been revealed that Dr. Ameyo Adadevoh, the consultant physician who passed on last night after having contracted the dreaded Ebola Virus from Patrick Sawyer, reportedly did a heroic job for the country when she forced Sawyer to his bed after he attempted to escape from the hospital .
Report says Dr. Adadevoh was infected when she forcefully restricted Mr. Patrick Sawyer to his bed after he tried to remove the drip administered on him.[eap_ad_2]
That one action, according to experts saved many Nigerian lives because, if Sawyer had succeeded in forcing himself out of the hospital, it would have been nearly impossible to trace those who had contact with him.
Dr. Adadevoh died at an isolation centre where she had been quarantined alongside other doctors and nurses who treated Sawyer at First Consultants Hospital, Obalende, Lagos.
Reports had suggested earlier that she had survived the disease and had been discharged from quarantine, until the Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu issued a statement clarifying that she was not the survivor.
She is survived by her husband and a son.
