Liberian Man Tested For Ebola In World's Fourth Most Populous City,lagos by tobtap: 6:51pm On Jul 24, 2014
Yesterday, when reporting on the latest tragic development in the wost ever Ebola outbreak to sweep through west Africa, namely that the head doctor tasked with containing the virus had himself contracted it, we commented that the "only good news, if any, is that even as the epidemic which has raged for months, and now appears to be out of control, it has not spilled out of Africa into other continents yet." That may not be the case for much longer following an update earlier today by Reuters that a Liberian man in his 40s is being tested for the deadly Ebola virus in Nigeria's commercial capital of Lagos, a megacity of 21 million people, the Lagos State Health Ministry said on Thursday.

This would be the first recorded case of one of the world's deadliest diseases in Nigeria, Africa's biggest economy and most populous nation, with 170 million people and some of Africa's least adequate health infrastructure.
What is worse is that, if indeed confirmed that he has been infected, the scramble will now begin to find and quarantine any and all other people he may have been in contact with in recent weeks, a task which in a city of over 20 million - the world's fourth most populous city after Being and above Istanbul - will be like finding a rational thinker in the Princeton economics department.

And where things get really dicey is if any of those infected people somehow managed to get on a plane in the last few days and departed for destinations unknown. At that point a watching of the 1995 Ebola thriller "Outbreak" may be in order.

The drastic public health measures adopted to stop the Avian Flu SARS virus in Asia might not be carried out as rigorously in Lagos Nigeria, so this news of one confirmed EBOLA victim in Lagos is cause for very great concern to ANYONE who visits Nigeria, as well as all residing there.

A single EBOLA victim that coughs inside the re-circulated air aboard a commercial passenger jet aircraft, for example, will infect the majority of all passengers and crew sharing that flight. There is cause for great concern not only in sub-Saharan Africa in this year of 2014, but WORLDWIDE, as this ominous storm gathers on the horizon.

The EBOLA virus, in the worst-case scenario, has the potential to cause a mass extinction of the ENTIRE human race, save for a few vestigial populations scattered among the planet's most inaccessible reaches.

EBOLA is an alarming phenomenon. Very alarming indeed, matter of fact.

Nigeria is a special creation. Ebola can wipe out other part of the world plus even re-kill their ancestors, but will do nothing to Nigeria.
We defeated SARS
We defeated the two deadly FLUS
We shall surely defeat Ebola

To remain sane and avoid panic in the face of this grave and expanding threat, all who live closest to the path of this virus would do well to adopt your optimism, while also taking the required hygiene precautions to prevent infection should it become a real possibility.
