Liberian Man With First Ebola Case In Nigeria Is Dead by LMAyedun(m): 12:23pm On Jul 25, 2014
Mr. Patrick Sawyer, a WASH consultant at the Ministry of Finance, who had been quarantined since arriving Lagos, Nigeria on Sunday, July 20, 2014 with symptoms of the Ebola virus, has died .

A Liberian government official, speaking on condition of anonymity said the news of Sawyer’s death was relayed to Liberia by the Nigerian embassy, in the early hours of Friday, July 25, 2014.

The Lagos government health authorities announced on Thursday, July 24, 2014 that Sawyer was being tested for the deadly Ebola virus.

Sawyer’s death is 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.

Ebola has killed 632 people across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since an outbreak began in February, straining a string of weak health systems despite international help.

Anyone coming in to Nigeria from those 3 countries (guinea, sieria leonne and liberia) needs to be given "special" treatment by the quarantine services at the ports.

Please tell the President to deploy "white coat troops" in Lagos, but that Might not be possible cos they are on strike(NMA).

I read it somewhere that an Ebola patient is more infectious and deadly at death. I pray no one gets infected though when getting rid of the corpse.

Did he enter Nigeria via a chartered flight? Hope he didn't infect any of his co-passengers during the flight to Nigeria?
