culled from vanguard
When the Catholic hospital in Liberia treating Patrick Sawyer’s sister
made the diagnosis of Ebola, Sawyer was aware of the diagnosis and
the implications and he was restricted from attending to his sister. But
he exercised his political power and violated the hospital’s instructions.
It was reported that he was found many times with blood stains on his
shirts while attending to his late sister. Even while in Nigeria,he
repeated similar thing when he was restricted.
The management of First Consultants Hospital reported that they were
under pressure to release him since he was a diplomat but the
management refused considering the effects of such unpatriotic act on
the Nigerian public. Sadly, in our usual way of doing things, one can
be sure that our government will not do anything to reward this
hospital or immortalize the health practitioners who lost their lives.
Imagine what would have happened if Sawyer succeeded in the wrong
use of his power and connections and was discharged from First
Consultants Hospital to travel down to Calabar?
A nurse that was involved in the treatment of Sawyer wickedly(or do I
say ignorantly) travelled to Enugu possibly to ‘distribute’ the deadly
virus to others including his family members. Remember that the said
nurse was aware that other members of the hospital staff were
quarantined along with other contacts of Sawyer but she decided to
run to Enugu without considering the passengers in the vehicle she
travelled in could be exposed to the Ebola virus.
Also, Sawyer as a true African, stubbornly left Liberia against medical
advice to attend the ECOWAS convention in Calabar. It was reported
that this Sawyer having discovered that he tested positive to Ebola, he
started urinating on the hospital staff of First Consultants Hospital
hence the need for the late consultant, Dr Stella Adadevoh, to
personally restrict his movements.
Some dubious religious leaders on their own part are busy preaching to
their gullible congregation that the said virus is from God hence it
requires God’s intervention to cure. I don’t want to talk about the
‘saltwater’ treatment which expectedly killed more people. What these
religious leaders never knew was that Ebola had been in existence since
1976. Expectedly, the man that took Ebola to Rivers State might not tell
the doctor that he was among the primary contacts of Sawyer hence the
doctor falling prey to his antics.
In Liberia recently,we heard that some idiots called gunmen went to
Ebola isolation centre and freed the quarantined patients and stole
the materials brought to the patients believing that the materials were
money. They even went ahead to claim that Ebola did not exist the
same way that some foolish people believed that the true meaning of
AIDS is,’American Idea for Dodging Sex,’ and today they are either
living with the virus or have died of the deadly virus disease.
THE GOVERNMENT THAT CANNOT BE TRUSTED
A national emergency was declared for Ebola virus disease by our
government and about N1.9billion was released and expectedly as a
Nigerian thing the few that are favoured in power will benefit from the
money ‘allegedly’ released after all it is said that one man’s food is
another man’s poison,whether the poor man out there is taken care of
or not that does not concern them.
If you ever accuse any of the officials of embezzling the funds
released,he/she will smartly rush down to court where he/she will get
perpetual injunction restricting EFCC,ICPC and other law enforcement
agents from investigating him and will still come out and ask you to
tender an apology for even thinking of arresting him in the first
place,the same way that the House Of Representatives asked NMA to
apologise to Nigerians for fighting for their rights.
Remember that the vital aim of the said strike is to compel the
government to revamp the moribund state of our health sector. Don’t
be surprised when the salaries of health workers would be
subtracted ,reason being the purchase of personal protective equipment
by the hospital management for the health workers.
Was it not this same government through their health experts that told
us that nano-silver was potential cure for Ebola?
Having confirmed the news from our supposed health experts,our
national dailies carried headlines such as: Ebola: Hope rises for local
treatments;Govt to introduce Nano Silver,drug developed by Nigerian
scientist etc. This was happening at a time that a fledgling internet
surfer knew that the said nano silver was a pesticide.
A woman recently lost her life after she was reported to have been
rejected by many hospitals. The said hospitals suspected that the
woman had Ebola virus disease and rejected her. After the woman
died it was discovered that she had no Ebola. Do we now blame the
hospitals for rejecting the woman?
In my own opinion, I don’t think that I will blame the hospitals because
there is no way endangering the life of other patients and staff of
the hospitals when it was clear that government had not provided the
required equipment to the hospitals. Another point there is: rejecting
the suspected patients and allowing the patients have access to the
Nigerian public ,is it not an act of un-patriotism on the part of the
hospitals? The answer to that question will be, what has the government
done for the management of the First Consultants Hospital Lagos,for
sacrificing four of their staff,one of which was a consultant, to
encourage other hospitals to be patriotic?
It was announced, last week, that about 70 people were quarantined in
Rivers State. Somebody should help ask our government officials the
exact location where the suspected patients are currently quarantined?
I am still in Rivers State and when I read the news, I called the
people I was supposed to call to know the exact location of the
quarantine centre, they were as confused as I was (or do I say I am
since I am yet to know the exact location).
We are no more kids,we have our communication gadgets,they should
not deceive us at this age. If the patients are not at UPTH(University
of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital) and not at BMSH(Braithwait
Memorial Specialist Hospital), worse still, the Emohua quarantine centre
is yet to be fully completed as at the time of writing this report,where
then exactly are the patients quarantined and where was the wife of
the late doctor treated?

Olu Ibukun Koye who despite warning, escaped to PH for treatment and was able to get cured of Ebola should be punished to serve as warning to others who may have the intent to run away from quarantine or jeopardizes the control of the spread of Ebola virus .
Olu Ibukun Koye is the name of the diplomat who after making contact with the Liberian diplomat Sawyer slipped into Port Harcourt to be treated by Ike Enemuo, a doctor from Sam Steel Hospital on East-West Road at his hotel. Then he returned to Lagos. Apparently Enemuo was
aware that Kuye was infected and even tried to decontaminate the place after treatment. Enemuo was treated at Green Heart hospital in GRA. The doctor was deceived by Enemuo. After Enemuo died, he was taken to UPTH. On hearing of his death, Kuye then made a confession about his trip to Port Harcourt.
About 160 people who suspected to have made contact with Enemuo have been put under observation but only his wife has shown symptoms
of the disease. Contacts are not patients.
According to Parker, all the facility to contain the disease has been assembled in the state including experienced experts from all over the world. The state is ready for any eventuality. Healthy persons do not transmit the virus.
