Spouses of two dead Nigerian Ebola victims test positive - Health Minister

Minister of Health Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu announced today August 22nd that Nigeria has recorded two new cases of the Ebola disease.

The Minister said the two new cases are spouses of dead Ebola victims who had primary contact with late Patrick Sawyer, the man who brought Ebola to Nigeria. Prof. Chukwu said the two new cases are the first secondary contacts in isolation to test positive to the deadly virus.

This brings the total number of cases in Nigeria to 14, with 5 deaths and 5 survivors. Details soon..

Na wa o! Everyday there is like 5 breaking news on Ebola. I pray they can treat this fresh cases and they don't die. I still wonder how come Patrick Sawyer's wife didn't get affected, and yet it spread to people that only had secondary contacts with him.



Are You A One Minute Man?

Anonymous said...

When they say surviors they need to explain what's exactly what that means? But didn't dey say u can get it until d person is sick? And they said the pry contacts where taken into isolation immediately, so hw did d spouses get infected? We need more facts to stay safe.

These people must not be allowed to die just like their partners, even if it means taking them to Emory where there is confirmed cure for this foolish Ebola; we must all rise up and do something to save these lives! both the govt. and every Nigerian; let's frustrate this foolish Ebola from our land

They had better start using the nanosilver and every other available options and stop being USA's mumu.

USA that claim there's no known treatment have cured and healed their own people. They don't care about us and will never care.

Which way Nigeria? The people in power are so stupid

Olumide pls go back to bed cos I see you've been asleep for 3wks now. Keep wondering about sawyer's wife...

I wonder how many people with Ebola came to Nigeria before Sawyer arrived in Lagos, with any other plane from Liberia or Sera Leon.
How many people die in Lagos or even in Nigeria, and how many of them get checked what the cause was?
How many people cross the green boarder from Benin Republic without getting checked, so many cars get smuggled without any problem, so much easier for a human. How many of them might have Ebola? If I'm an Liberian, I would also jump in my car an just drive with my wife and kids to Nigeria and try to leave with my American passport from here.
I wonder if anybody really understand what is happening?

Good save Nigeria, but I buy myself a ticket and watch the new from oversees.

Common sense shud tell u that they probably got it frm their spouses thru sex. D virus is in bodily fluids wch includes semen and vaginal secretions.
