Ebola officially moves to Port Harcourt, 70 people reportedly under surveillance

Following the death of Port Harcourt based doctor, Iyke Enemoah, from Ebola on August 22nd, 70 people in Port Harcourt who had primary and secondary contacts with the doctor and the hospital where he worked have now been put under surveillance in a bid to stop the spread of the deadly virus in the city.

Dr. Enemoah's wife is the only one who has been quarantined.

Why wait for almost one week for the news of Ebola in Port Hac our. The state Govt need to be more proactive in solving this challenge. There is need to set on motion a hospital monitoring team to ensure strict compliance to infection prevention strategies on the state immediately

now the stupid diplomat that flee from being quarantined is alive while the stupid doctor is dead,

why didnt the diplomatic idiot go back to his family when he notice he has contacted ebola? he choose to go hide himself in a hotel, putting other pple at risk.

ASAMPOKOTO said...

Why is it that a white man feels he has Ebola, he turns himself in. But a black man will never do the same. Like why? Why sooo selfish? What is wrong with Africans? I don't get it. And that doctor. See where greed gets you. Smh! There's really no difference btw sawyer and that diplomat at this point.

Henry said...

FG pls enact a law to punish those whose deliberate greed and action leads to the spread of this disease because they are as wicked as Boko Haram.

Henry said...

Can you please disclose the identity of this diplomat and doctor. I believe if all the names of those who have primary and secondary contact with sawyer were publish, people would have noticed and reported this diplomat in Hotel before now. How can we ascertain the number of people who have one way or the other got in contact in the hotel. Pls this issue is very serious.

Honestly,I seriously doubt that the doctor knew he was 'treating' an Ebola patient.He's not hear 2defend himself so let's go easy on him a little for d mean time till we get all details abt his involvement with his diplomat friend.Ebola has no cure for now so what treatment might he have been giving him in a hotel that doesn't even have any dish called Zmapp on their menu

They should be about 200, not 70. Amechi, let's see how smart you are. What about the mortuary attendants where the doctor's corpse was deposited before they decided to check the body in hindsight?

Useless and greedy Dr enemoah! He. Didn't go to lag to hel in d isolation center when he knew he had d professional know how to treat Ebola.. But wait o, was his wifey not aware of his stupid and greed all along? Y did she keep quiet knowing she and her kids were @ risk? Too many questions to be asked.. guess like husband like wife..

Linda, i beg u. Use dis media to encourage or even advise radio stAtions, tv stations n health minister to encourage pple dat have ebola symptoms to report themselves so they can be helped. They cannot make it on their own n they r not outcast but they wil die trying to do it on their own. All d adverts i see is just telling us to be on d look out but they nid to talk directly to ebola patients incase there r more hiding

Recent investigations have shown that the rate of infection for ebola is a doubling of cases every 35 day. If this continues on it's present course we will have 22 million cases in 12 months with 50% dead.

The doctor is very stupid,that serve him good , because of money he put many life in danger.can he deined that he doesn't know that, that man has this disease and he logged him in the hotel for secret treatment, putting his family in danger and entire pple in problem, or have he not been hearing that who ever that have contact with ebola patient should call ebola line.that is good for him let him go and enjoy his money in the grave idiot.

@Asamkpoto - indeed. We are a wicked generation. Read the lib reader that posted that his neighbor is exhibiting ebola and nobody wants to come and see the neighbor? Instead they are threatening to arrest him for disturbing the peace?

All the bed linen at the hotel, plates, cleaning rages, mops, etc are contaminated. The hotel staff, all the bikes and taxis they entered to and from work. All the people that made contact with the bike and taxi drivers. All the other passengers that boarded right after the ebola infected people. All the people on the flight or means of transportation that idiot took from Lagos to PHC. We are yet to see the end of Ebola. May God rest the souls of those it is about to claim

It is too late to point fingers, what we need now in PH is to create awareness and not to cause mass panic. The government should educate the people on the symptoms to look out for and where to go to if they know or think that they have been exposed to avoid putting others at risk. There are now vaccines that have been proven to combat EVD, which are already been in the Lagos treatment centre, so the earlier you check into one of the treatment centres the better for you. Let's all help to curb the spread of this dreadful disease.
We will overcome EVD, BY concerned resident.

The state government lost focus as the second term began, all they cared about was how much money they could loot. the constant bickering in the health sector of rivers state is one of them. Though one shouldn't rejoice in the misfortune of others, i can't help but show how money minded these doctors can be!. They are crying for hazard allowance, when they are the least amongst medical personel except surgeons -which by the way can't operate with their bare hands and so should all medical personel. The Nurse do not shut down the health sector, neither do the medlab scientist or radiographers. these earlier mentioned allied proffessions are exposed the most to varied forms of hazards. i would also not downplay the role of the smallest cleaner, why? because they come in contact too. We all need to work together to make us better!.
